OVERVIEW

Description

The 7-day Be The Change Conference has been carefully constructed over 6 years to combine the tools, resources, and inspiration needed for participants to achieve their vision of social change. The Be The Change Conference facilitators live, eat and work with the participants throughout the week with additional guest speakers presenting on topics most relevant to the participants in a particular conference. The week is structured in 3 phases: identification of purpose, project implementation and future planning, with the final day culminating in a session where fellow participants and facilitators provide constructive feedback, encouragement and suggestions on how to continue forward.
