Are you an undergraduate or graduate student with an interest in becoming a leader in your community?
Are you committed to bringing better representation for women in all fields?

Apply for the 2015 Alene Moris National Education for Women’s Leaders Institute.

The Alene Moris National Education for Women’s (NEW) Leadership Institute is part of a national program started by Rutgers University in 1991. This program is designed to encourage women to seek out leadership positions and engage more with the civic community. Women are over 50 percent of the American population and yet they are underrepresented in leadership positions in virtually every field. The Alene Moris NEW Leadership Institute is working to change that.

The Institute lasts for 6 days, from June 22nd-June 27th, 2015. During that time, participants will meet some of Washington’s leading women who can offer insight into their experiences and provide important training and networking skills. Some topics that are covered during the Institute:
• How to run for political office
• Public speaking
• Negotiation
• Working in the non-profit field
• Managing diversity in the workplace
• Networking
All undergraduates and graduates attending any 2 or 4-year Washington State college or Washington residents attending an out-of-state school are eligible to apply. The cost of the program is $150 and a limited number of partial scholarships are available. You do not have to be a Political Science major; anyone with an interest in improving their leadership skills and joining a network of influential women is encouraged to apply.

Deadline for applications is April 3, 2015

Applications can be found here.


“What do Peer Health Educators (PHEs) do?”

PHEs facilitate educational workshops that give students a space to talk about health issues, learn the facts on health, and develop the skills needed to be healthy. PHEs also host events like Sextravaganza, partner with residence halls and student groups for health events, help craft health policy, create web content, and more!

“Wait, is that a backwards way of saying you preach abstinence?”

The American Diabetes Association has a volunteer opportunity for you!  Every year, the ADA organizes a week long summer camp for kids with diabetes.  It is a very unique camp because it is integrated into a traditional summer camp with kids who do not have diabetes.  The ADA’s role is to manage all of the medical care for the diabetic campers so they can enjoy summer camp!  We plan to have 75 campers this summer, out of about 250 kids total.  It takes a lot of volunteers to make this camp
happen; we are very interested in involving students who are going into the healthcare field and who want to learn more
about taking care of kids with diabetes.

The ADA Diabetes Camp is held at Camp Sealth on Vashon Island.  It will be from Monday August 3rd to Saturday August 8th, 2015.  Volunteers need to be able to stay at Camp Sealth for least 3 days but are welcome to stay for the entire week. Room and board are provided. Volunteer duties include helping kids check their blood glucose levels and managing them if they are too high or too low.  No prior experience with this is needed, although it is helpful, as there will be training before camp to teach you everything you need to know!

If you are interested in helping out, please email Karlie Hailstone

at the ADA for more information. She can be reached at
