“As a new Chapter Founder at the Summer Institute, hearing about the personal experiences of Chapter Leaders from other universities really inspired and excited me about my own Chapter’s potential. Students are the heart of this organization, so meeting Nourish students from across the country was an invaluable experience for me.”–Felicia Alexander, UNM Chapter Founder and current Alumni Committee Member
Thursday August 1 – Monday August 5, 2013
The Nourish International Summer Institute is a rigorous and rewarding 5-day conference that prepares our students for the challenges they’ll face as Chapter members. Through workshops, mentoring, and hands-on training, they’ll learn how to raise money, contact community partners and run a successful Nourish chapter on their campuses in the upcoming year.
Participation in the Institute fully enables Nourish students to hit the ground running as they begin new and exciting adventures in the following year. Training at past Institutes has focused on how to increase the profitability of ventures, maximize your project impact, lead a team, build membership and more.
We also feature speaker and mentors throughout the Institute. Learn more about our past speakers here.
