Join Our Student Advocacy Cohort, SLAM!

What Is SLAM?
Swipe Out Hunger formed its very first advocacy student network known as SLAM: Student Leaders Advancing Movements.

The SLAM network is a learning and networking group of students from across the country activating and advocating on their campus to end hunger and move forward the movement for student basic needs.  
 
SLAM meets via online forums (e.g. webinars and GroupMe), town halls, in-person trainings, Swipe Summits, and more! Students have the opportunity to come together to share their advocacy successes, navigate roadblocks, learn best practices from fellow students/Swipe Out Hunger staff, and set up a deeper connection with fellow students.

Who Is Eligible To Join SLAM?
Through SLAM, Swipe Out Hunger brings dozens of students together to share their advocacy success, navigate advocacy roadblocks, learn best practices from fellow students/Swipe Out Hunger staff, and set up a deeper connection with fellow students.

Participation in SLAM is open to any student currently enrolled in school and will expire one year after graduation.

What Will I Commit To When I Join SLAM?
SLAM is an informal network of student leaders, but because of its small size and commitment to deep training and sharing, we ask each member of SLAM commit to participate to the fullest extent they can for a full academic year. SLAM members will convene a 1 hour call/month with additional and separate communication channels via GroupMe. These calls will only be offered to SLAM members and we ask that each student attend these calls or if they are unable to, they ask a student at their school to fill in.
