Idealist National Conference (March 3-5, 2006 in Nashville, Tennessee) is the largest convening in the country of campus community members involved in service, activism, politics, and socially responsible work. For 21 years, this conference has brought together student leaders and activists, campus administrators, and nonprofit professionals for three days of networking, storytelling, and learning.
In organizing this conference, as in all our work, we are committed to fostering an environment which reflects, supports, and celebrates our collective diversity including age, sex, gender, race, ethnicity, nationality, class, sexual orientation, ability, spirituality, life experience, and point of view.
Highlights of the conference include:
1,500 participants -- college students and professionals from across the country who are actively and creatively engaged in service, activism, and civic life on their campuses and in their communities.
150 workshops on everything from leadership skills, to international human rights, to career development, to activism through art.
60+ local, national, and international nonprofit organizations offering volunteer opportunities, jobs, internships, year-of-service programs, and more for students and administrators of all levels.
The power and inspiration of a national campus-based movement!
