Instructor Application

We are seeking professionals who are motivated to develop personal leadership skills while mentoring youth through their experience of the Red Hat Shelton Challenge. The intent of the Red Hat Shelton Challenge is to provide each student with an enriching, developing leadership experience. Youth will explore areas of values-based leadership, integrity, team building, public speaking, and social responsibility. Students will learn about leadership via instruction, example, and the personal opportunity to lead. It is offered to rising ninth-through twelfth-grade youth with a grade point average of 3.0 or better. All expenses during the week will be paid for on behalf of the Center.

As we reflect on #BlackHistoryMonth and our cornerstone values, we recognize that a diversity of experiences and backgrounds are key to our shared success. Thank you to leaders of @NCSUWomensCtr, @ncsuaacc, & Black Male Initiative who shared perspectives! youtu.be/StssC-itpyg

We had a packed last day in London! Half of us visited the @zsllondonzoo and got a behind the scenes tour from alumna Dr. Guthrie. Others visited @RCT Windsor Castle and then we wrapped at @TheLondonEye with gorgeous views. It has been a life changing and transformative week! pic.twitter.com/w5gVwIkHJx

Today we had the incredible opportunity to visit @UKParliament and meet Lord Chris Smith, MP for 22 yrs and the person responsible for making museums free for all. He was the first MP to come out as gay in 1984. It was a privilege and honor to spend time with him. #SheltonAbroad pic.twitter.com/gz3HAdZV9s
