Service & Leadership Symposium

Sparking Significance: Making Moments that Matter

“Sparking Significance” will be an opportunity for you to receive the inspiration and resources to help you find your purpose and connect with your passions. Join us and let this morning be the spark that changes your life.

The Volunteer Center’s 2018 Service and Leadership Symposium will feature Susan Heath Hays.

Susan is the sister of Chip and Dan Heath, who have published their new bestseller “The Power of Moments.” Susan is a catalyst and motivator. Come explore why certain brief experiences can jolt, elevate, and change us, and how we can create such extraordinary moments.

The Symposium will also feature:

  • an opportunity to interact with area nonprofit organizations
  • the chance to complete hands-on service projects
  • a celebration of outstanding volunteers and leaders in our community
