Description

Have you ever asked yourself the question, “What can I do with my social work degree?”

If so, on October 4th, the students of L.E.A.P. (Lead, Empower, Act, with Purpose) invite you to participate in a night of inspiration, celebration and networking for us as the future leaders in the profession. Hear and meet keynote speakers who present new ways to think about how to approach your career path. Network and connect with fellow students and alumni who share a commitment to being change makers and want to be the creators and problem solvers who bring a new vision to the practice of social work.

L.E.A.P.’s mission is to motivate and inspire future social workers to figure out their passion, connect and network with leaders in the profession, and engage with the possibility of an unanticipated journey; one that is outside the norm, off the beaten path. L.E.A.P. is here to provide the people and the forum that will guide us in how to think outside the box and bring stimulating and refreshing perspectives and opportunities our way.

Be empowered to find your passion and to envision your work with an innovative perspective. Reserve your spot now and we will see you on October 4th!
