ILEAD is switching formats! For the upcoming 2016-2017 program year, there is NO application process. Instead of a set ILEAD class that meets throughout the school year, the Interfaith Relations Department will offer stand-alone events geared specifically towards high school students. How will you find out about these events? Join the IR mailing list by clicking the Sign Up button below and we’ll email you whenever we have an event coming up. You can also check IM’s Events Calendar.
Starting in September 2016, we will coordinate events like House of Worship Exchanges for youth, a Youth Service Day, a Youth Dinner Dialogue and more. Stay tuned!

ILEAD is Houston’s premier interfaith youth leadership program. ILEAD began in 2012 as a leadership training experience with its sights set on equipping youth from diverse backgrounds to be leaders, whether it be in their academic, social, or religious environments.
The ILEAD program offers high school students a distinctive combination of networking, university level discourse, and unprecedented access to Houston’s premier leaders from the business, civil service, and faith communities.
ILEAD program’s mission is to cultivate confident, respectful and engaged leaders who embrace their own faith traditions and embody effective multicultural leadership skills in their personal and professional lives.
