“I have become a part of a great movement, a wonderful community, and the opportunity to do awesome things for the world. I am forever grateful for the skills I have gained and the friends I have made. I left the institute feeling excited and proud to be bringing Nourish to my campus.”
- Jason Allenstein, UC Berkeley Chapter Founder
Thursday July 31 – Monday August 4, 2014
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 earn money, partner with international communities, 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.
