TURNING PASSION INTO ACTION:

A Conference for Aspiring Public Service Leaders

Thursday, October 27 – Sunday, October 30
Binghamton, New York

Do you want to be a change maker? Did you know there is a degree for that?

Apply to attend a free student conference to learn more and meet other changemakers:

  • Speed network with individuals who are working to create positive change
  • Meet innovative thinkers in public policy, philanthropy, international NGOs and more
  • Participate in social and cultural activities
  • Make new friends from colleges and universities across the Northeast

Who can apply?

You can…if you are a motivated student in NY, CT, NJ or PA, who has completed at least one year of college by fall 2016. We are looking for unique perspectives. It does not matter what your major is – or if you have chosen one yet!

Why you?

Building a better, more inclusive future starts with the next generation. You could be one of 25 future leaders from across New York State and our region selected to attend this all-expenses paid conference.

Isn’t public service just working for the government? Or elected office?

No! Changemakers come in many forms: social entrepreneur, nonprofit leader, international development professional and many other careers.

What can you expect?

There will be full days of talks, seminars and opportunities to meet other people who are making a difference through public service.

What else will there be to do?

There will be social and cultural activities included in the weekend. See a live band or play, chat with Binghamton University student leaders and more!

Is it really free?

Yes! Everything is included: hotel, food, cultural attractions, even bus travel to Binghamton, so that you can focus on learning and building a network with your fellow future leaders!
