Millennium Campus Network National Conference :: Sept 17 - 19, NYC.

The Millennium Campus Network (MCN) is a national network of student organizations dedicated to the eradication of extreme poverty and the achievement of the UN Millennium Development Goals.

The MCN's goal is to build a generation of leaders who are equipped with the tools they need to make ending extreme poverty a reachable goal within our lifetime.

MCN does this by holding monthly assemblies in each MCN District, where reps from MCN Member Orgs meet to discuss a different topic.

The MCN also holds a national conference every 2 years - the next one takes place this weekend @ Columbia in NYC! Registration is only $10 and meals are included. Register here. In addition to skill-building workshops and info sessions, students will get to hear from speakers including Dr. Bernard Amadei (Founder, Engineers Without Borders USA) and filmmaker Bobby Bailey (Co-founder, Invisible Children). YEAH BOBBY!

John Legend supports the MCN. Check out this related PSA from John Legend, directed at college students:
