Two-day event held at FSU and hosted by a Nobel Peace Prize winner.  Students spend the weekend with hundreds of youth from throughout the Southeast, engaging in workshops, service projects, and small group discussion led by more than 80 college student mentors.  The Nobel Laureate delivers a keynote address, has lunch with a group of students, participates with youth in a service project, and leads a “ceremony of inspiration.”

 Cost: $100 per person (five meals, a water bottle, and a t-shirt included)

This year our Nobel Laureate is Dr. Shirin Ebadi! She won her Nobel Peace Prize in 2003 for her efforts in defending families of serial murder victims and child abuse victims and prioritizing cases involving the unfair treatment of women and children. Born in 1947 in Hamadan, Iran, Ebadi became the first woman judge in Iranian history and was regarded as one of the most well-known lawyers in Iran. Today, Dr. Ebadi continues to work for human rights around the world.
