The annual Catalyst Conference brings a select group of approximately 100 high school students from North Carolina high schools to UNC-Chapel Hill for a weekend-long exploration and discussion of social justice issues impacting North Carolina youth.
Participants will face a challenging task: They will be asked to view the world through the eyes of others and to learn about the underlying similarities that connect us all. By cultivating their leadership skills, we prepare students to be catalysts for positive change in their own communities.
This year’s conference will be held from Friday, Feb. 16, 2018 through Sunday, Feb. 18, 2018. If you currently attend high school in North Carolina and are interested in social justice, please apply to our 2017 conference!
Your application must be submitted by 11:59 pm on Friday, December, 1, 2017 to be considered and decisions will be released around January 1st, 2018.
