New York Student Leadership Conference hosted by Pace University

Each year, Global Brigades aims to host Student Leadership Conferences that are regionally based across the USA and Canada. Student Leadership Conferences are a great opportunity for students leaders to share best practices, meet with staff to discuss programs and gather with other passionate leaders.

 A Student Leadership Conference will take place on Saturday, February 8th, 2020 at Pace University.
