SALT = Student Ambassador Leaders Together
when | MONDAY, JULY 16 (MORNING) – WEDNESDAY, JULY 18 (EVENING) Participants are asked to arrive the evening of Sunday, July 15 for check-in and plan to depart after 7pm on Wednesday, July 18.
where | BALTIMORE, MD & WASHINGTON, DC
who | We invite teams of 2-3 individuals per university already engaged with our CRS Student Ambassador program to apply. Ideally, this would include 1 Advisor with 1-2 Student Ambassadors who have prior experience with and knowledge of CRS. We prefer that student participants are incoming sophomores and juniors. Universities are invited to apply as a team (rather than as individuals). If spaces remain available once all interested campuses apply, we will open up the opportunity for campuses to bring additional representatives for a fee.
Note: This is not an introductory training—for that, check out our Fall Regional Training options: http://university.crs.org/students/trainings. If your university is not already connected with our CRS Student Ambassador program, you can be! Contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to start the CRS Student Ambassador program on your campus.
cost | CRS and Loyola University Maryland are happy to once again be able to offset the cost for participants of the CRS SALT Summit, including most meals, accommodations, sessions and speakers, and transportation within Baltimore/DC during the summit. Participants are asked to cover the cost of their transportation to and from Loyola University Maryland in Baltimore as well as a couple of meals on their own. For campuses that are able, we ask that you consider a donation to provide travel support for participants who would otherwise be unable to afford it.
what | CRS Student Ambassadors and Advisors will have the opportunity to meet others in the national network, connect with CRS staff and experts, build leadership and campus organizing skills, and better understand the global work of CRS and our potential for impact as college students and staff, including advocacy training and preparation as well as advocacy meetings on Capitol Hill with the offices of your Senators and Representatives.
