Students: Become informed and engaged change-makers!

Colleges and universities: Sponsor two or three undergraduate students for a weekend delving into issues of intersectional feminism, civic engagement and social justice. Open to all gender identities.

Students from across the country will engage with one another in small group discussions and with panels of leaders who are making a positive impact on the gender equality movement. They will be given the tools and resources to return to their campuses as informed advocates for positive social change.

Colleges and universities are being invited to select and sponsor two or three of their sophomores and juniors to attend Spring Breakthru by covering their registration fee, travel and hotel. To receive further information and updates, please fill out this short form.
