If you need a little more convincing and a lot more smiling, watch these TikTok videos from our CRS Student Ambassadors Julie and Merina.

Note: CRS Virtual Voices 2020 is an opportunity to connect and make an impact in lieu of our originally planned CRS SALT Summit 2020. Out of an abundance of caution and to ensure the safety and health of our CRS partners and staff in the US and around the world, we have made the difficult decision to postpone the CRS SALT Summit until July 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. SAVE THE DATE: CRS SALT Summit 2021: July 25-28, 2021
