BELIEVE is a movement dedicated to inspiring young adults and business professionals to believe in the promise of making our community a better place to live, work and thrive through the inspiration and experience of others. The LIE Believe Symposium was created to empower Long Island’s students and young professionals to create a better environment to raise a family, develop a career, start a business and live a fulfilling life.
Our concept was to spark Long Island’s leaders of today AND tomorrow, to work together and learn from one another…and believe in their communities, in their future and in themselves. Through keynote speakers, interactive break-out workshops and multiple networking opportunities, students of various backgrounds were presented with a chance to connect and be inspired by community and business leaders who have made a difference right here on Long Island.
The symposium consisted of two equally important parts; an inspiring day for students followed by an evening fundraising cocktail reception for the business community…thanking them for their selfless contributions.
A significant portion of the funds that were raised through the LIE Believe Symposium sponsorships were delivered to the following organizations:
Long Island Educational Charities: Junior Achievement
Long Island Works and the Mentoring Partnership
A portion of the funding was delivered to graduating students through the LIE Believe Scholarship Fund
