From August 9-11, 2013 more than 200 student leaders from across Canada and the U.S. will gather at UC Berkeley in the San Francisco Bay Area of California for trainings and workshops in leadership development, fundraising, recruiting, organizing and how to start your career in global health and economic development.
Global Brigades will cover accomodations and food for all those attending. Up to 2 student leaders per discipline on your campus (Medical, Water, Microfinance, etc.) may attend. All Campus Chairpersons are expected to attend. Accommodations are available Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights. Attendees are expected to be present from 10am Friday morning until 1pm Sunday morning. If you have any questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. See you there!
CSLEPS Service Leadership Teams will be pairing up with various organizations on campus to raise money for Wine to Water, which is a non-profit that focuses on providing water to countries where access to clean drinking water is not a luxury. To achieve our fundraising goal we will be putting on an A Capella concert-with teams from NC State and Duke from 6 to 9 at the Hunt Library. We will also have a special guest, speaking about how Wine to Water was started and what this organization has accomplished. Tickets are $5 for students, although with a group of 30 or more they are $4 per person.
