Local Leadership in a Global World

Friday, November 30 – Sunday, December 2, 2018
La Jolla, California

Do you want to have a meaningful career?
Is giving back as important as earning a paycheck?


This interactive weekend is designed to expose students to the myriad ways they can make a meaningful difference in the world. There will be skill building and networking, and chances to interact with policy experts and public officials, culminating in a group project you can use in your portfolio as you move on to your next adventure. All on the beautiful UC San Diego campus, just minutes from the beach.


  • Peeking behind the curtain – life in the public sector
  • How the private, non-profit and public sectors work together to create public goods
  • How to get an interview and then the job
  • Making the right choice for you, work or school?


Participants must be currently enrolled, or a recent graduate, of a 2 or 4-year college or university living in Southern California with interest in the public sector. All majors are welcome. Preference is given to traditionally underrepresented students.


Priority Application Deadline: 11:59 pm CT on September 26, 2018

Final Deadline: 11:59 CT on October 6, 2018
