Announcing the 

Keynote Speaker for Engage-NJ Student Conference 2020 

Saul Flores is officially the keynote speaker for the Engage-NJ Student Conference 2020 titled "Connecting Volunteers to Meaningful Careers". Flores walked 5,328 miles through ten countries to document how grueling and dangerous the journey of immigrants to the United States can be and to raise money for an elementary school in Atencingo, Mexico. The story of his journey, accompanied by a series of photographs, capture the essence of the people, communities, and cultures he encountered along the way.

New Jersey Campus Compact Presenets Students' Stories of Engagement

We wanted to take the time to hear from these inspiring students because, after all, this is a big reason why we keep showing up every day – to help people find their way into and through adulthood, to help them discover their passion and direction, as Kaeley Ipson wrote below. 


But this work - developing civically engaged graduates - is about more than motivating students to complete their degrees, as Rebecca and Rameez describe below. It’s also about showing the world that these are the excellent, skilled, adaptable, positive contributors to the workplace and to society more broadly. These are the people, who, through their experiences in helping communities prosper, are surely the very people New Jersey’s employers and social innovation investors should be climbing over themselves to entice into their business worlds.
