2) Provide models of civic/community engagement projects or programs. We are especially interested in models that are unique, innovative, sustainable, and replicable.

3) Demonstrate the effective use of the arts and/or social media to draw attention to/give voice to social issues.

3) NEW THIS YEAR – Priority will be given to workshops that help students understand how to be effective activists, advocates, and policymakers on the front line of social change.

Deadline: October 13th

Now more than ever, young leaders are necessary to address the pressing issues facing our nation and world. Our theme this year reflects the critical need for thoughtful voices to bring attention to the challenges but also the need for strategic action to address them. Participants will be introduced to the issues underlying the need for service and to best practices that build their understanding of how to engage, while networking with other students who are leading community engagement work on their campuses.

Friday night includes a group service project, dinner, and reflection. Saturday includes plenary sessions and workshops. The keynote speakers are Jason Lee, Executive Director of the Jubilee Project, and Josephus III of the Poetry Project.
