This conference will inspire you to Act for Compassion so we can change the story for children living in extreme poverty. The conference will include:
  • Participating in a Walk With Compassion. As a conference registrant, you will receive email updates about how to engage in the fundraiser prior to the conference and the actual Walk that is scheduled for the morning of April 16.
  • Dove Award nominee Shaun Groves will be sharing with us through songs and words throughout the entire conference.
  • Compassion alumnus Ben Mwangi from Kenya will inspire us with his story and the impact Compassion and his sponsor have had on his life.
  • Be inspired by the documentary film premiere, "Central Help," produced by Emmy-nominated director Jon Ross who asks the question, "How different would this world be if poverty didn't exist?"
  • Hear what others are doing to Act for Compassion -- some teens who planted a church and a retired man from Wisconsin who raised funds to rebuild classrooms in El Salvador.
  • Author Lorie Lee will be leading day-long interactive activities for children and youth as they experience what it means to be "Global in your Local." 
  • There will be a session on utilizing the Act for Compassion platform, plus topical workshops and Q & A sessions, plus much more.
  • The Compassion Store will be open and you can peruse the various resource booths.
  • Breakfast, lunch and snacks will be provided as part of your registration fee.
