The Social Justice Symposium and Leadership Workshop
Want to start your own community based project or program but don't know where to begin? This is the workshop for you! We'll be teaching the basics of program start-up including how to conduct a needs assessment, what's important in a grant proposal, and how to do community networking. This event is open to all UH students. This should be an excellent opportunity to collaborate with students from different programs while getting quality advice from community experts on how to make the most of your program. Turn your ideas into meaningful action in your community! We are putting a cap on attendance: 40 participants as many as we can accommodate! RSVP today!
