Leadership Conferences

Students who participate in PAM have numerous opportunities to gain leadership experience. Both mentors and mentees can choose to attend conferences where they meet other students with similar interests, develop leadership skills, and are trained in, or exposed to, new ideas. When attending leadership conferences, students will attend motivating, informative, and interactive workshops conducted by established leaders in education, government, and private industry. Conferences also provide opportunities to network with professionals and peers for internships, summer jobs, and even career opportunities.

Financial assistance is available for students interested in attending a conference. To apply for financial support, complete the fund request form.
