Join us this October 19 – 20, 2018 for the inaugural LIFT conference.
The LIFT Conference: A Gathering of Student Service Leaders
The LIFT Conference is designed to bring together student leaders who are connected to their campus office of community engagement and service-learning at institutions of higher education in California. A goal of the event is to convene student leaders who have an affinity for promoting, supporting, and advocating for meaningful service opportunities in college settings. We hope to use the event to build a network of support for students in similar leadership roles.
Conference organizers have identified four values that encompass the purpose of the gathering:
LEADERSHIP: This value denotes the roles conference attendees play in their respective campuses and communities.
INNOVATION: Establishing a flow of information between student leaders will spark new ideas about how to best develop and expand leadership skills and service programs.
FELLOWSHIP: The dictionary definition of fellowship is “friendly association, especially with people who share one’s interests.” By bringing like-minded student leaders together, we will provide an opportunity to forge new connections and discuss shared experiences regarding the importance of service in higher education.
TRANSFORMATION: We value the opportunity that service leadership provides the students to experience personal and professional growth. In doing so, they are better able to impact their respective service programs, campuses, and communities and transform our state into a more healthy, vibrant place for all people.
