WVWC Staff and Students Attend Political Summit

Earlier this summer, the Bonner Foundation sponsored the Summit on Political Engagement for college and university administrators and students, as well as the annual Summer Leadership Institute for Bonner Congress members. The entire conference, held June 4-7th at Allegheny College, explored themes of political and civic engagement, and demonstrated through workshops and forums the possible connections found between service and politics. These connections were condensed into five pathways for political change: “elections, litigation and the courts, grassroots mobilizing, lobbying and cultural change.”

LeeAnn Brown – Director of Community Engagement and Leadership Development
Evey Hepinger – Coordinator of Student Employment and Bonner Scholars
Brooke Rawson – AmeriCorps VISTA Member
