Save the date for this summer’s CRS University SALT Summit!
This summer, July 24-26, Catholic Relief Services (CRS) is offering a three day leadership conference for current CRS Student Ambassadors, who are invited to engage in higher-level skills training. Teams of 1-3 students, preferably rising sophomores and juniors, are invited to apply to attend the training in Baltimore, MD.
At the training participants will engage in:
- Community building with other ambassadors and advisors
- Connecting with CRS staff and experts
- Prayer and reflection
- Skill-building workshops (i.e. campus mobilizing, media/communications, advocacy)
- Content-based workshops to dive deeper into areas of CRS expertise (i.e. human trafficking, Syrian refugee crisis, climate change).
- Traveling together to Capitol Hill to hear from government experts about the importance of integrating our faith into working for global justice and advocacy and then to do our own advocacy on issues of global justice and peace.
- Idea sharing on engaging with CRS programs on campus (i.e. CRS Rice Bowl & CRS Fair Trade)
The priority deadline to apply is March 11. Download this flyer for more information!
