AUSTIN, Texas – The KinkAcademy Emerging Leaders (EL) program is a leadership development program which enables newer kink/alternative/leather community members from across the country to participate in problem-solving work groups, network with peers, gain an inside look into community structure, and have an opportunity to serve the community in a leadership capacity. It puts participants on the fast track to event volunteerism as well as other related organizations.

The EL program kicks off with a webinar in January. Afterward, it grows and develops in an online learning and networking environment for the year. The program culminates with a poster session presentation to display the results of the project planning work of each group at some national event, preferably the LLC or a Flea or some larger national event.
The program is limited to no more than 20 participants each year. (Program Leader Information at bottom of post). Eligibility is limited to under 35 years of age or be a new community member of any age with fewer than 5 years of experience working in the community.
The Kink Academy was founded by Princess Kali, a lifestyle Dominatrix and BDSM educator. Princess Kali launched KinkAcademy.com to bring sex-ed to people who typically couldn’t attend live classes due to location, privacy, or budgetary concerns.
