August was exciting as GivingPoint got back in the swing of things for the 2018-2019 school year!
Social Innovators Academy
- Thank you to our South Fulton locations and presenters: Constellations, Habitat for Humanity, Gene Kansas of Constellations, and Aubrey Logan-Holland and Robby Reyes. Read more about South Fulton here!
- Thank you to our North Fulton locations and presenters: Century 21 Connect Realty, Chattahoochee Nature Center, Rony Delgarde of Global Paint for Charity, and our own Board Member, Dr. Darian Jones. Read more about North Fulton here!
This school year, we are most excited about our expansion into new geographic areas that we have not been in before, and this is due in part to our hiring of the newest GivingPoint team member, Paige Whalen! Paige is the Associate Program Manager for the North Georgia region, and will be working with our schools in the North Fulton region to bring GivingPoint and Social Innovators Academy to a whole new group of students.
International Visitor Leadership Program
We also had a unique opportunity this past month to host the Kenyan delegation from the U.S. Department of State’s International Visitor Leadership Program (IVLP) during their time in Atlanta. We got to share about the work GivingPoint does, including some of the amazing things our students are doing.
