GivingPoint wrapped up 2018 with a great December!

We hosted Social Innovators Academy workshops for all our cohorts, and we spent plenty of time preparing for 2019.

 

Social Innovators Academy

Our South Fulton group met on Tuesday December 7th to learn about Strategic Leadership from Yoshana Jones Hill, and our North Fulton group met the following week on December 14th to learn from Dr. Steven Palmer about the same topic. You can check out the full recap of the workshops here.

In-school Social Innovators Academy

Our Northview High School program also covered Strategic Leadership in December, and are looking forward to their final workshops and wrapping up their program in January.

And our Milton High School cohort, our first ever embedded in-school program, completed their Social Innovators Academy in December and celebrated their successes with a pizza party! We will continue our relationship with these SIA students next semester while they continue to develop and implement their projects. We also will still be at Milton next semester as we kick off another cohort of the Social Innovators Academy!

 

December involved a lot of reflecting backwards and looking forwards. GivingPoint accomplished a lot in 2018, and we have big plans for 2019 as well!
