Alumni Volunteer Awards

October 20, 2008

Hundreds of volunteers gathered on campus September 19-20 for the Alumni Leadership Conference (ALC), an event that sharpened community-building skills through workshops on K-12 initiatives, philanthropy, shared leadership, and effective communication. The accomplishments of this year’s Bronze Beaver winners epitomize the ALC theme, “Inspiring Innovation.” Learn more about these volunteers and catch some leadership tips in the online workshop materials: alum.mit.edu/ne/alc.
