Sidak is a distinctive leadership development program for young adults seeking to increase their commitment towards the Sikh faith. This two-week intensive immersion into the Sikh culture, language, values and community is held annually in the summer.
Sidak is available for adults 18-40 years old (17 year olds that have completed high school are considered).
Application to Sidak
Space is limited, so applications are reviewed as they are received. All applicants are subject to review by the Sidak Admissions Committee. Fees are refundable only if the applicant is not accepted into the program.
Paying the Deposit vs. Paying Full Price
Unless you are paying your $150 deposit for General Registration, you are required to pay the full cost for your registration. General registration is the only registration type that allows for a deposit to be paid in advance and the remaining cost at a later date.
Financial Assistance Available
Money should not be a barrier to connection and deepening your journey in Sikhi. For those requiring financial assistance to attend Sidak, we provide a simple process to make an application for financial assistance, which is subject to review by the Sidak Admissions Committee. Simply click "Register" and select "Financial Assistance" as your registration type.
