IMPACT National Conference

The IMPACT Conference is historically the largest gathering in the country focused on the civic engagement of college students in community service, service-learning, community-based research, advocacy, and other forms of social action. Our mission is to strengthen communities through service, action, and advocacy.

Building on the rich 27-year tradition of the COOL Conference and the Idealist Campus Conference, IMPACT is the one time during the year when students, administrators, faculty, AmeriCorps members and VISTAs, and nonprofit professionals gather together to share resources and exchange stories.

  • Action & Advocacy
