Get Engaged: Student Action and Youth Leadership Conference
For the first time in two years, Bard College students were able to join in person for the 2022 Get Engaged Student Action and Youth Leadership Conference. The conference took place June 23–30 in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan on the beautiful campus of the American University of Central Asia, bringing together undergraduate student leaders and mentors from 28 countries and 17 institutions in the Open Society University Network.
Global Engagement Fellows
Selected fellows have developed and sustained a civic engagement project and demonstrated leadership skills and a desire and aptitude for working with others. Fellows may apply for a microgrant of up to $750.
Global Fellows Program Coordinator
American University of Central Asia / CCE
As a coordinator for the Global Fellows Program, I aim to help global fellows realize their full potential by assigning them and helping them with different motivational tasks that will inspire them to be as active as possible. I support fellows as they create and implement their own Civic Engagement Projects to help engage students across the network and make an impact in their home institutions and communities.
Not a traditional academic conference
The Get Engaged Conference brings together students from across the Bard International Network to develop community leadership skills and collaborate on solutions to local and global challenges.
Workshops focus on: Leadership, Public Speaking, Networking, Social Media, Community Partnerships, Innovation and Creativity, Fundraising and Grant Writing, and Emotional Intelligence.
