1. 2011 Public Affairs Convocation Lecture featuring Nancy Lublin (DoSomething.org and Dress for Success). Date: Wednesday, March 30, 2011
Time: 7:00 p.m. Location: Juanita K. Hammons Hall for the Performing Arts.
This is a great opportunity to hear from the person who started Dress for Success and is currently involved in the movement to get young adults involved in their communities. She does this by providing grant money to young people who want to make a difference. Please encourage students you come in contact with to attend this event.
This is a free event, but requires a ticket. Tickets are available through JQH, Hammons Hall and PSU ticket offices. There will be a book signing after the event.
DoSomething.org is one of the largest organizations in the United States that helps young people rock causes they care about. A driving force in creating a culture of volunteerism, DoSomething.org is on track to activate two million young people in 2011. By leveraging the web, television, and pop culture, DoSomething.org inspires, empowers and celebrates a generation of doers: young people who recognize the need to do something, believe in their ability to get it done, and then take action. DoSomething.org provides grants to young people who want to get involved in their communities. Plug in at http://www.DoSomething.org. Ms. Lublin is also the founder of Dress for Success. Her first book, Zilch: The Power of Zero in Business was just released on June 23, 2010.
