312-291-0395The Mid West Student Leadership Conference is going to be host to hundreds of student leaders from around the region – it’ll be a great place to meet student leaders, build skills and learn about important issues – we’re also going to use these conferences to get out the youth vote for the fall mid-term elections, tackle climate change on our campuses, and build a network of student activists across the northeast.
You can register for the conference at www.trainings.org.
The conference is co-hosted by the Student Empowerment Training Project, the Student PIRGs and the Energy Action Coalition, and is being hosted by University of Wisconsin, Madison. All these groups have a lot of experience working with and training students – you’ll be able to learn from student organizers as well as experts from a variety of fields.
We’ve got big problems – Politicians aren’t paying attention to young people, college is getting more and more expensive, our leaders aren’t effectively addressing climate change, 30 million Americans are hungry or homeless - the list, unfortunately, goes on and on and on.
We’re inheriting these problems, so we’ve got to be ready. This fall, we’re coming together as a region to figure out how to address these problems right now.
This event is for:Student Leaders from Accross the Mid West! Student Government leaders, students running voter registration effforts, students running clean energy campaigns.
