August was exciting as GivingPoint got back in the swing of things for the 2018-2019 school year!

Social Innovators Academy

We are hosting two cohorts this year, one for South Fulton and North Fulton students. This month we hosted retreats for each group!

 

Introducing Paige

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.
