Step Up 2022: A Big Year with a Big Goal

Our annual conference for undergraduate volunteers will take place Jan. 5-8, 2022.

This global symposium will gather our undergraduate student volunteers to share how Operation Smile contributes to global health – and how students from every major can get involved.

Professionals from different disciplines – medicine, business and education, just to name a few – will speak and offer advice for students’ next steps, not only in their own careers, but in their volunteerism with Operation Smile.

Operation Smile celebrates its 40th anniversary in 2022, and to mark a big year, we’re tackling a big challenge: As part of our Beyond the Smile campaign, we want to provide our medical volunteers with the items and funds they need to provide dental care, speech therapy, nutrition counseling and psychosocial support.

We’ll discuss these specialties and ways you can support their important work during Step Up.
