Graduate Studies and Research Calendar of Events and Deadlines



Beyond Z is a national startup with a mission to diversify our nation’s leadership force. We discover, develop, and connect diverse young people to networks and opportunities that accelerate their leadership and career potential. 

 We seek volunteers (called Leadership Coaches) interested in making a commitment to coach a cohort of 4-6 young people - either 7th graders in East Palo Alto or sophomores at San Jose State. We'll support you with high quality resources and trainings, as well as a community of staff and volunteers, so you can focus on building a collaborative group culture and coaching their collective leadership development. You'll deepen your professional skills and networks in the process. 

 The Coach commitment is from October 2014 through May 2015, and, depending on which program you get involved in, requires anywhere from 4-8 hours monthly plus 4 weekend days over the year.

The Leadership Coach application deadline is September 21. Please sign up on our site here to learn more and start your application today!
