Congolese Students Conferences


Perhaps the title says it, but we seek for more than biref exposés and presentation. We aim at creating an inspiring academic diaologue between big brothers/sisters and little brothers/sisters of the Congolese community. We see college graduates sharing their experience of choice making and hard work in school, and the path that they took to get to graduation. High school teenagers looking up to their big bros and sis, this structured conversation could boost the motivation of our congolese youth to reach for higher goals in life and to generate the discipline to achieve their dreams. More details to come. Bring your ideas to the table.


*Colleges and Universities Spring Break 2021 will occur this year between March 9th to April 21st. The two peak weeks will be the week of March 7th and March 14th.
