ELGL hosts events on high school, community college, and college/university campuses to inspire students to consider careers working for towns, cities, counties, and special districts. These events are called #ELGLInspire.
These curated events include presentations from practitioners working in the wide variety of jobs found at the local government level, networking time for students to meet with the speakers, and practical advice about finding a local government job, internship, or graduate degree.
Virtual events are $1,500 and are hosted on ELGL’s virtual conferencing platform. In-person events are $3,000 and include a meal for all students, ELGL travel costs, and staff time. In many cases, community partners and organizations partner together to bring an #ELGLInspire to a school in the region. ELGL can assist with fundraising if needed.
