Interested in working with a non-profit? Planning on going into a medical field after college? Then look into the International Medical Outreach (IMO), a non-profit organization here at UCF!

 

IMO works to help those all over the world that are not able to fully help themselves and improve not only the medical surrounding of a group of individuals, but also the mental environment around those individuals as well! While most people have an extra shoulder to rely on, IMO bases themselves on providing that shoulder for those that don’t. IMO provides seminars, panels, and other forms of help for its members when it comes to progressing in the medical field, both career wise and educationally. Aspiring students can earn service hours via KnightConnect and join others in their journeys to succeed. IMO does trips to Haiti, New Orleans (NOLA), and other countries (which vary depending on conditions and season), and they plan to get back to traveling as soon as they can to aid those that need the extra help.  

You can get in contact with IMO through their Instagram (@imoucf) as well as their Facebook and UCF website https://www.imoucf.org. They would greatly appreciate your support if you're interested!

The annual 2021 Student Global Leadership Conference takes place April 10-11, 2021. Sponsored by the Foundation for International Education, this conference is, for the first time, fully online and completely free to attend.

 

This year's theme, "Leadership for Change in an Uncertain World," brings together a diverse array of leadership experts and educators from around the globe for a weekend of in-depth leadership learning and training, on a timely topic applicable to everyone. This is a unique opportunity especially for students to have a global leadership conference on their resume. 

Both undergraduate and graduate students are welcome to attend, from any college or university in the world. This is a great opportunity for your students to network with students, other student-leaders, and leadership professionals from around the world. It's also great professional development for leadership educators, faculty and university staff too.
