This year Nourish International has been selected as a Co-Host for the Millennium Campus Conference. The MCC is an invite-only conference for student organizations that address global development. The conference is centered around the UN Millennium Development Goals and how student organizations are working to achieve them. The conference also gives Millennium Delegates the opportunity to partner with peer organizations, national institutions, and global networks. It brings together over 2,000 student leaders and over 50 world-renowned speakers all cooperating to accomplish eight goals that will improve the global standard of living. The conference will take place on the beautiful campus of Lynn University, located in Boca Raton, Florida.
Students will take part in this amazing collaboration from Friday, October 10th to Sunday, October 12th. At the conference, students will debate issues, such as serving versus donating, and have the opportunity to network with organizations from around the world at the Change the World Fair. Furthermore, the conference will include world-renowned speakers, including Nicholas Kristof, Kristin Davis, and Dr. Paul Farmer. On the last day, students will have their voices heard as the Policy Paper on youth perspectives is presented to experts. The conference will end with closing ceremonies focused on a roundtable discussion.
This conference is a great experience for any student interested in sustainable global development, which is why we are inviting you to attend and join the movement.
Nourish International is committed to continuing to improve our extensive student leadership curriculum. In keeping with this, the National Office is excited to announce that alumni will be serving as mentors to current student leaders at the Summer Institute for the first time ever.
Alumni will attend Summer Institute workshops alongside students and will be able to provide instant feedback on ideas for ventures, projects, leadership, and more. This presents a unique chance for students to receive advice from past students who have gone through the same challenges they currently face as campus leaders. This also presents an opportunity for alumni to stay connected to and give back to Nourish.
The following alumni will be serving as mentors at the Summer Institute:
- Alex Ahearn: former chapter leader at Duke University
- Logan Couce: former NINO staff member and UNC chapter alumnus
- James Dillard: former NINO staff member and UNC chapter alumnus
- Alison Dorsey: Duke chapter alumnus and Argentina project participant
- Joel Thomas: first executive director of Nourish and UNC chapter alumnus
- Bryon Zandt: former NINO staff member and UNC chapter alumnus
We are excited to welcome these esteemed alumni to the Summer Institute!
