BENEFITING: StartingBloc NFP
Hello beautiful people and thanks for visiting my page!
I have been recently selected as a StartingBloc Social Innovation Fellow for 2010. What is StartingBloc and why should I care? Glad you asked! StartingBloc is a non- profit organization that takes students and young professionals (aged 20-29) and provides them with the training, education, and networks necessary to turn any career into a socially responsible one. Fellows learn about corporate social responsibility, social entrepreneurship, cross sector partnerships and sustainability from leading academics, corporate innovators, social entrepreneurs, activists and government officials. The curriculum provides a fresh look at global issues and enables fellows to innovatively affect change at all levels.
The tuition for this program is $1000 (way beyond my meager non-profit salary means)! Unlike many other organizations and programs that I've been a part of, StartingBloc does not offer scholarships... instead they challenge their fellows to be entrepreneurial and raise their tuition themselves. With your help, I think I can do just that.
Any amount helps! Please consider donating a couple dollars to help me fund my tuition. And if you can't give monetarily, a few words of encouragement will do as well.
Thanks in advance for all of your support!
