Leadership Converse

This past summer, Converse College hosted her 3rd Annual Leadership Converse, a three-and-a-half day workshop for rising female juniors and seniors. We are officially kicking off the search for participants of the fourth year of this exciting program! The goal of the program is to teach students that leadership is a process where individuals or groups work together to create positive, sustainable change.  Students who are active in their communities or in leadership roles, have a passion for helping others, and who have a vision for positive change are encouraged to apply.

In the spirit of “everyone can do leadership”, we are committed to offering the program at no cost to students who are invited to attend. We are passionate about equitable access to the program, so housing, meals and supplies will be provided for the participants of the program. The only thing students will be responsible for is transportation to and from the camp, if they are accepted to attend.

The application is available online through April 15, 2017.  It is live now! Converse will not accept any applications after April 15th at 5:00 PM.  Three short essays and a letter of recommendation are required. The dates for Leadership Converse are July 23-26, 2017.
