Wellesley BLUEprint 2020:

A virtual volunteer conference

Wellesley BLUEprint 2020 is a virtual conference that celebrates and informs our alum volunteer leaders and will guide priorities for the year. The two-part remote gathering has been developed to give a complete picture of Wellesley today while focusing on planning and skill building for our volunteer leaders sharing common roles. Current volunteers have been invited to register and links for the sessions will be shared 24 hours in advance.
