This February I joined a new social program called YCore, started right here in the Bay Area. YCore is a social impact fellowship started by a few twenty-somethings that equips young professionals with the tools to impact their local community, now and for the rest of their lives. As part of the Fellowship, I’m building a social impact toolbox through workshops on topics like design thinking and social justice, gaining hands-on nonprofit experience working with nonprofit 826 Valencia (http://826valencia.org/), and building a network of amazing colleagues who want to dedicate there life to making positive social impact. The Fellowship gave me a place to put my passion for helping those who are less privileged or resourced to good use, and taught me how to effectively listen to the needs of non-profits and see where my professional skills may be able to help. If you would like to see a future where people use their skills and knowledge to help people who really need it, please support YCore! :) Your donation here is tax deductible!
