UNC Chapel Hill: Catalyst Conference 2015
Every year, the Catalyst Conference brings a selected group of 100 high school students from across North Carolina to UNC Chapel Hill for a weekend-long exploration of social justice issues affecting both America and the larger world. Through leadership and personal development sessions, we aim to empower participants so they can serve as catalysts for positive change in their own communities. The Catalyst Conference serves a vital need, as encouraging today’s youth to take an interest in national and worldly issues is vital to securing an educated and passionate group of future leaders. These 100 students will face a challenging task; they will be asked to view the world through the eyes of another and come to a realization of the underlying similarities that connect us all.
Catalyst Conference 2014 seeks to:
The Catalyst Conference is a great opportunity and learning experience for developing high school students. The conference will take place on the campus of UNC Chapel Hill February 20-Februrary 22, 2015. A $50 registration fee is required upon acceptance (DO NOT include this with the application) to the conference, which helps to offset the cost of housing and food for the entire weekend. As we do not wish to exclude those with a financial need, if you have an interested student who may not be financially able to pay the entrance fee, please notify us separately and we may be able to offer a scholarship. Only high school students in grades 9-11 are eligible for application. No seniors or students who have previously attended will be accepted. Applications must be submitted through Google forms by Saturday, November 15th at 5 PM. If a student is unable to submit the application electronically, please tell them to e-mail email@example.com for a paper copy as soon as possible. Once they receive a paper copy, it must be post-marked 3 days prior to the application due date. The application can be found here.
The Catalyst Conference is part of a larger UNC-CH umbrella service organization known as Campus Y. Not only will students be exposed to social justice issues, they will also have a chance to explore the UNC-CH campus and learn more about the UNC-CH academic experience through interactions with their committee leaders and other volunteers in the Campus Y. Please publicize this with the enclosed invitation letter, and make the application link accessible to your students. If you have any questions or comments, please email the Campus Y or the Catalyst Co-chairs (firstname.lastname@example.org). Thank you, and we look forward to receiving your students' applications soon!
