Waco Collegiate Forum
Vision: Connect college students from local campuses to exciting initiatives and new opportunities in our community that showcase Waco as a place to stay after college. We believe this is a place where you can begin you’re a career, start a family, and engage throughout the city to make a difference. Through our program, students will build relationships with city leaders and young professionals, learn about the Waco economy, experience its budding art and entrepreneurial culture, and celebrate the new and exciting developments coming soon down the road. At the end of six weeks, students will have gained insight on how to engage with building this city, they will have expanded their network, and maybe even fallen a little bit more in love with our wonderful city.
Through the weekly meetings, students are mentored by area business and community leaders, learn about community engagement in Greater Waco and become effective professionals after college. With these resources, WCF teaches each student the true meaning of being a leader in the community and workplace.
