Were you unsure what to get me this year for my golden birthday (March 24th)... you're in luck!
I have recently been accepted to the StartingBloc Fellowship which begins with the Institute for Social Innovation. Yay! The 2012 Boston Institute will take place over Memorial Day weekend: May 24 - 28 at Babson College. My goal is to cover costs for the tuition fees to attend the institute.
The Institute is a five-day transformative experience where 90 international young leaders learn to increase their impact via social and economic good. The curriculum includes modules on social entrepreneurship, intrapreneurship (working within systems), cross sector partnerships and sustainability. Throughout the Institute , Fellows receive the training, education, and networks necessary to accelerate their careers in social impact. StartingBloc speakers lead interactive sessions that demonstrate how to blend social and economic impact.
I am honored with the opportunity to learn more about how to increase my social impact through the work that I do. Social entrepreneurship is where I see great value for society and hope. Any amount towards the cost of attending the Institute helps and is appreciated!
