Social Innovators Academy
The final workshop of the year for our SIA students is all about the nonprofit process and the paths they can take their project after SIA is over. For some students, receiving their 501(c)3 status is the best path forward, but for others they can continue their work without it. Read all about the workshops here!
In-school Social Innovators Academy
After starting our in-school SIA for the first time with two cohorts in the fall of 2018, it was great to wrap up the 2018-2019 school year with two more in-school cohorts this spring. Both our Milton High School and Roswell High School cohorts wrapped up in April, and we are looking forward to being back at these schools and more in the fall of 2019.
Our annual Sparks event took place on Tuesday, April 23rd, and was one of our favorite events yet! The event was a little different than Sparks of the past, but we think it was a great night showcasing students and celebrating all the supporters who made this year possible. Read the full event recap here!
Upcoming for GivingPoint
As we head into summer, things will slow down a bit for us at GivingPoint, but we are still busy working to promote and support students like you who are making a positive impact in your community! We are in the process of recognizing exceptional students with both graduation service cords and the President’s Volunteer Service Award. We look forward to sharing more information on these awards next month!
Additionally, while our 2018-2019 programming is finished, we are looking forward to kicking off 2019-2020 programs with another year of our week-long Summer SIA! We will be working with students in Atlanta at Constellations from June 3rd – 7th, and then in Roswell at The Cottage School from June 10th – 14th. We can’t wait to meet this next group of social innovators!
