Participants get the chance to

- Build relationships with student leaders and United Way professionals
- Get inspired by fellow students’ new and innovative ideas and share experiences
- Get an inside scoop on how to start or grow their own Student United Way
- Further develop leadership skills
- Be a part of something global
Past retreats have included a visit to the White House and a keynote session with Brian Gallagher, President & CEO of United Way Worldwide.
