The JLC recently sponsored 4 UW-Madison student's trip to the 2018 IMPACT Conference in Dayton, OH. 

The JLC also sponsored 1 UW-Madison student's trip to the 2018 I-LEAD hosted by ACUI at West Chester University in Pennsylvania. 

Here's how It went: 

IMPACT provides a vastly different perspective on so many societal issues because of the different backgrounds that every attendee brings with them. Building connections with these folks is such a fun and powerful way to make change in the future. It's refreshing to be in a space with other young folks who are also willing to challenge ideas and strive to create change.

Karen, UW-Madison Student 

I would absolutely recommend the IMPACT Conference to other UW-Madison students. IMPACT is unique in that it is operated by students, for students. The broad array of topics discussed at the conference ensures that all participants can find a topic which particularly interests them. Additionally, the networking opportunities are incredible and allow you to engage in the sharing of ideas and stories from other campuses which you may adopt and bring back to UW-Madison. Attending the 2018 National IMPACT Conference was truly inspiring, empowering, and enlightening and I am so grateful for having this experience so early in my college career."

Haley, UW-Madison Student

"I-LEAD is focused on unlocking the potential of one’s mind. They created and facilitated an environment where I was able to not only share my story with others but hear how people from different backgrounds can affect my story and vision. I’m now even more grateful for all the things that I do have and more motivated to use this gift to advance myself and others. More so than that, I’m extremely inspired by how these people I met with such harsh backgrounds remained resilient and motivated in spite of so much hardship."

Yu-Lin, UW-Madison Student
