The University of Colorado Denver Peer Advocate Leader (P.A.L.) Program and The Peer Leader Center invite you to join us for the 1st Annual:
Rocky Mountain Peer Leadership Conference
About The Event
We invite Colorado students, staff and faculty involved in peer leadership programs to a day of learning, teaching and sharing.
Peer leadership programs include peer mentors, advisors, educators, tutors, cultural ambassadors, and other similar programs. It's time we all get together to share what we know, learn from each other, and celebrate the great work we all do!
This 1-day event will include presentations from community leaders, team-building, poster sessions, and interactive leadership workshops and a final debrief session to turn the day's learning into action when you return to campus.
Come mingle with mentors, staff and faculty to learn from each other, network and share great ideas

Mentors, faculty, and staff are invited to propose a workshop session or a poster presentation to conduct at this year's conference. The deadline for proposals is January 15th, 2014.
Topics may include diversity, leadership, communication skills, organizing groups, managing challenging situations, promoting your program's successes, marketing your skills, or other important peer leadership topics.
The workshops are 45-minutes long. The goal is to help those who attend your workshop to learn and share about the topic in an interactive way.
We encourage every program to sign up to present a poster and share their successes.
