UVA Conference Showcases Community Service, Advocacy, and Social Justice

The National IMPACT Conference is considered the largest annual conference focused on getting college students engaged in civics.

The conference, held at the University of Virginia, was all about giving a place for students to connect and share ideas about ongoing issues. Students can then take the information they learned and apply it to better their communities.

The event was hosted by the Madison House, an independent volunteer student center.

"Hosting the IMPACT conference has been a chance for us to bring over 550 or so students and administrators from around the country here to Charlottesville to learn from some of our incredible nonprofit leaders, local activists," stated Tim Freilich, Executive Director of Madison House.
