This year I applied to the StartingBloc Institute in New Orleans and I was accepted! I've been presented with the opportunity to join a community of change-makers to network, learn, and grow in order to become a powerful force for good. StartingBloc offers a 5 day transformative experience where I'll be learning from Social Enterprise powerhouses like Paul Polak of Windhorse International, Gayle Karen Young from The Wikimedia Foundation, and Matt Candler from of 4.0 Schools.
I'll be participating in hands on learning, applying skills and techniques for innovation that have been integrated into the curriculum at schools like Princeton, Yale, and Berkeley. We'll then be working with local New Orleans startups to apply these techniques and help to solve some of their most pressing problems. I'll also have the privilege of joining an active and supportive network of over 2,000 fellows from non-profits and social ventures located across the globe.
However, in order to attend the institute and take advantage of this amazing opportunity, I need your help to raise the $2,000 tuition fee. Every donation is appreciated. Whether your donating $5 or $500, you'll be contributing to my personal and professional growth by helping me to attend this amazing program! Please don't let me miss out on this incredible opportunity to learn to have a positive impact and create lasting change. THANK YOU!
