Event Description:


This annual Youth Conference themed “Take Action! Achieve your Dreams” at Columbia University which provides 150 8th and 9th-grade students a unique experience to visit a college campus and attend hands-on workshops lead by professional organizations, college staff, and corporations. Throughout the day-long conference, HISPA highlights professionals and careers in STEM fields. The conference will also feature a panel of university students, including special guests from Columbia University and CUNY.

Registered volunteers support the day’s activities. All volunteers will have the opportunity to share their unique educational and professional journeys and serve as role models for students, joining a group of 8 per table. Other volunteer tasks include welcoming students as they enter the building, setting up, distributing materials to the students, and supporting technology and any special needs that students might have throughout the day. Breakfast and lunch are provided to all volunteers.

This event is currently opened to volunteers who are part of the companies presenting the different workshops.

Sponsorship opportunities are still available. Please contact Dr. Ivonne Diaz-Claisse at ivonne@hispa.org or 908-907-5290.
