Leadership and Scholarship with Impact:
Strategies to Turn Ideas into Results
An Interactive Workshop with Lyric Chen
Do you have a great idea but don’t know how to make it a reality? Are you eager to change the world but don’t know where to start? Come to this workshop to learn how to turn an idea or an interest into an action plan, and ultimately, create impact in a sustainable, collaborative manner. You’ll find information for every stage of the service and leadership process, from finding your interests and passion, reflecting on your short and long term goals, to crafting your organization’s mission statement and filing for incorporation as a business or nonprofit, and, ultimately, charting a career path dedicated to service and social change. You’ll have a chance to craft your ideas, share and collaborate, hear from others and learn from people who have done what you hope to begin.
