Global Brigades invites student leaders from around the world to host a GB Student Leadership Conference in their own regions.  Hosting a regional SLC is a great way to gather Global Brigades student leaders and volunteers to learn about programming, discuss global health and development, share best practices for managing brigades, and more.


With the support of Chapter Advisors and other Global Brigades staff, student leaders will learn how to organize and host a regional Student Leadership Conference.  We aim to empower our student leaders to organize multiple conferences throughout the year and include as many people as possible in our growing movement.


Read Our Conference Planning Workbook  

The conference planning workbook will walk you through the steps necessary to plan a successful conference. It will also explain the required and optional components of an official Global Brigades Student Leadership Conference.
