TRIO Day: Youth Summit Call for Student Panelist & Proposals
Calling all student leaders and campus organizations! Rutgers Upward Bound and Upward Bound Math-Science is sponsoring the "I AM COLLEGEBOUND: TRIO DAY-NJ Youth Summit" on Saturday February 25, 2017 from 9:00AM-2:00PM in the Livingston Campus. Upward Bound is working with local communities to promote and increase youth development. The purpose of the youth summit is to provide first-generation, low-income students with exposure to the process of academic inquiry and the college experience through a series of educational and social workshops and activities. We believe that truly effective youth programs are marked by high levels of student involvement and community advocacy; which is why we have extended this opportunity to not only program participants, but to other community youth to share our program's mission of creating resourceful, informed students who enhance our community. We invite you to serve on a student panel or facilitate a workshop that provides students with techniques and strategies. * Please note: All sessions are 40 minutes in length and will run concurrently.
Workshop and Panel Topics and Themes include:
- College Preparation (resume building, college/major selection, etc)
- Understanding and Meeting Greeks Organizations:
- College Success Panels: STEM & General
- Student Advocacy & Leadership
- Social and Cultural Awareness
- Professional Etiquette & Dress
- Other Educational Experiences
If you and/or your organization are interested in participating in the Youth Summit as workshop facilitator(s) or panelist(s), please complete the online CALL FOR PROPOSAL form below by Saturday February 11, 2017.
