The newly inducted Campus Initiative Alumni Association Council is a group of experienced and passionate leaders who will serve a two year term to cultivate global leaders as they graduate and transition into careers and outlets of higher education. By reminding graduating seniors that the fight to reach zero does not end at graduation, these leaders will cultivate lifelong volunteers who are knowledgeable and passionate about UNICEF’s work and the need to support ongoing, lifesaving efforts.

A year after our first meeting, the members of the UNICEF Campus Initiative Alumni Association Council reunited at Riverside Church on Saturday, October 8. We fueled up on coffee, reviewed the schedule, donned our blue UNICEF nametags to get the Campus Summit off to a great start. It was a busy morning of assisting and directing the over 250 student participants between the hostel, the United Nations, and the event venue at Riverside Church.
