Pay it Forward Conference

The 2nd annual Pay It Forward Conference is an event that brings together middle and high school students from all over Long Island. This year the conference is joining forces with Habitat for Humanity to help build a Long Island a home as well as other non-for-profit agencies that would help the students to support their local community. Although the location has yet to be determined the conference is schedule to be held on on March 31, 2009 from 9:00 am – 2:00 pm. For more information please contact Brian Mannix, Pay It Forward Advisor at bmannix@greatneck.k12.ny.us with Pay It Forward as the subject title. Or you may also join the Pay It Forward Ning if you’re interested in learning more about this project.

    Thank you so much for the post. We have recently partnered with Habitat for Humanity and have set the goal of the conference to develop an implementation plan enabling the attendees to raise money and work on the building of a Habitat for Humanity home.

    The demand for our conference has been growing exponentially from last year. As a result, we are considering getting a larger venue.

    Please bring your suggestions for PIF ideas, blogs and discussion to http://www.payitforwardconference.ning.com

    Peace and pay it forward,
