10th Annual Get Engaged Student Action and Youth Leadership Conference
The 10th Annual Get Engaged Student Action and Youth Leadership Conference, organized by Bard College and the Open Society University Network (OSUN) Civic Engagement Initiative in partnership with the Community Engagement Office at Central European University (CEU), brought together 52 students and affiliated staff from 20 OSUN partner institutions for a landmark convening at CEU’s campus in Budapest, Hungary.
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.
