Michigan Campus Compact (MiCC) hosted the annual Active Leaders Student Conference (ALSC) on October 4, 2013, which serves to prepare college student leaders to be change agents for the issues in which they are passionate.
The purpose of ALSC is to develop community leaders across the state of Michigan. The theme this year is “A Single Raindrop,” courtesy of the nonprofit New World Flood. A single raindrop is the beginning of a flood. Students heard all day about how they can use what they have; time, talent and treasure; to make a difference in their communities and the world.
Todd “TJ” Duckett of New World Flood delivered a keynote address around the theme and challenged students to find their purpose. Students spent the rest of the day in a collaborative environment where they were able to attend a variety of content sessions, as well as work with students in their same region to look at ways in which they could work together throughout the year. Students really enjoyed the opportunity to develop leadership skills and develop service initiatives on their campus!
