Hey! We're CSI (Chi Sigma Iota) the Honor's Society in Counseling for Clinical Mental Health and School Counseling master's students at the University of San Diego. As ambitious, aspiring counselors we love seizing every chance we get to learn more about the fascinating and important field of counseling. This year, the American Counseling Association is putting on their annual conference in San Fransisco, and we'd love to attend. Attendees will have the opportunity to learn and grow through a wide variety of education sessions, such as the Grad Students & New Professionals Only Series; collaborate with counseling peers from around the globe; get trained to become a Red Cross Disaster Mental Health Volunteer; gain career insights and/or leads at the ACA Career Center; relax/recharge at special evening events, and so much more.
In support of this fundraising mission, our professor Dr. Wendell Callahan has also agreed to grow his hair until the goal has been met! Help Dr. Wendell get his hair cut.
The American Counseling Association's 65th Annual Conference, held in San Fransisco this March, will be the national counseling event of the year, providing amazing professional development and learning opportunities to graduate students and practicing counselors. As a club, we'd like to raise as much money as possible to help a handful of graduate students take advantage of this awesome opportunity to learn from and network with professionals in our field! Donations will cover the cost of transportation by vehicle and accommodations for members of the honors society to get to and stay in San Fransisco the weekend of March 16-19 for the Annual ACA Conference.
All gifts will go towards travel expenses for the ACA Conference, including:
As a club, we have hosted a couple of raffling events and coordinated partial proceed nights with local businesses to raise funds for the ACA Conference on our own, but we still have a remaining portion of the trip cost left to cover. To avoid having students have to pay for the remaining costs on their own, we are asking for your generous donation. In addition, our favorite professor, Dr. Wendell, has agreed to grow his hair until our fundraising goal has been met and it is getting long!
