This is my attempt to leverage the power of social networking and media to raise funds to attend the StartingBloc Fellowship Institute for Social Innovation. The Institute is a five-day transformative experience during which young leaders learn to increase their impact, exponentially. The Institute curriculum includes an innovative case-study competition and sessions with industry leaders. The 2013 Los Angeles Institute will take place February 14 -18 at the Annenberg Community Beach House in Santa Monica. Institute tuition is $1000.
As you may or may not know, I am really passionate about community development work, particularly in programs that help to alleviate poverty, educational inequity, and negative health outcomes. When I graduate in May, I would ideally like to devote my energy into creating programs that are innovative in creating solutions for social and economic problems that are plaguing many US cities. Your generous donation would really help me out, even if it were just a few bucks. Thank you for your time and support. Please also feel free to reach out to me if you have any ideas or suggestions.
