Regional Training Institute Buzz
SYRF Institute participants had rave reviews for last year's trainings:
"This was one of the most intense and satisfying experiences of my young adult life-it incorporated everything that is most important to me as a method of reaching a goal about which I am very passionate. I met people that I never would have known existed, and learned invaluable facts that I will use for years to come."
"Thank you all so much for the wonderful opportunity to learn, create, and inspire others. I have taken this experience to heart, and I am better for it."
"I absolutely adored the interfaith panel discussion at the conference, and the lobby experience during the 2nd day. These are both going to translate into practical skills I will be able to use in future activism."
