PLAS has a very unique opportunity we’ve arranged with a new networking initiative called “Greenlight Giving CollegeCONNECT”. This particular initiative of Greenlight Giving started as a project with Yale Law Students to develop what it means to truly network as an individual and within a committed group of similarly-focused peers. The feedback that these students provided was unbelievably positive – and many students still report continued success and utilization of skills gained from the experience.
Now some of you may be as connected as Yale Law Students – but many of us are not! – and that’s why Greenlight decided to develop a program that can reap the same benefits of smart networking and build it specifically to a constituency of students at a public university with a more diverse group of students. They felt that the U of I was the perfect place to develop the program – and have worked for the last year to prepare and develop the program to meet U of I student needs – and want to provide it free this year as a pilot to a select group of UIUC Pre-Law Students!
We are looking to create 5 or 6 teams of students composed of 5-6 members per team. Each team will move the program together and complete tasks and approach challenges together.
If you are interested in participating in this free pilot program that could be the entry to a new and major network for you – please visit http://www.signupgenius.com/go/508094DABA72DA57-collegeconnect for sign-up information. The kick-off event is scheduled for Tuesday, March 12 from 5:30 – 6:30 p.m. Please forward this message to motivated and interested students in your group that you could envision taking the initiative to benefit from such a program!
