2021 Step UP Symposium

It’s time to Step UP.

We say this all the time at Operation Smile, but it’s true: Our student volunteers are our future.

And now that we’re all facing the staggering impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, we need our student volunteers now more than ever before. We need our future – now.

The pandemic has postponed international medical missions, which means that even more people are going to need our help when programs resume. Take part in our annual Step UP symposium and help us address these challenges.

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.
