Out Youth proudly announces that our Executive Director, Aubrey Wilkerson, has been accepted for the Leadership Austin Essentials Class of 2017.
One of the reasons Aubrey was selected is because of his experience related to issues facing the LGBTQ+ community and our youth. Leadership Austin will help Aubrey evolve his leadership style, and deepen his understanding of the issues that will impact Out Youth’s work now and in the future. Out Youth’s Board of Directors unanimously voted to fund Aubrey’s Leadership Austin class dues because of the opportunity it represents for both Aubrey and our organization.
Leadership Austin was founded in 1979 by the Greater Austin Chamber of Commerce with a mission to provide leadership training to emerging and established leaders in Austin. Participants develop leadership skills, learn about the issues affecting Austin, and build relationships with others seeking to find creative solutions to the problems facing the Central Texas region.
