We are looking for a variety of different workshops for IMPACT 2011 on topics such as:
–    IMPACT from the Classroom: how to transform your learning experiences with best practices from the field of service learning, research, and students taking initiative to combine their service and academics,
–    Building your Leadership Tool Kit: how to take your engagement to the next level with practical how-to’s and “who’s done its” from the national network. Whether it’s recruitment, how to motivate, communicate, or build your organizational success,
–    Issue Me Change: understanding the issues (whether they be hunger, environmental justice, homelessness, health or something else),
–    Make Way for the Advocate: Figuring out how to take the step from service leader to community activist and delve deeper to better advocate for change.
–    Career Building:  How to build a career out of fighting for social justice in today’s economic times with practical advice from the change agents of today, and
–    Refining your leadership or administrator skills through our brand new IMPACT Leadership Academy, and the IMPACT Administrator’s Institute.

Making IMPACT 2011 the best conference ever starts with YOU!
