February flew by at GivingPoint!

Social Innovators Academy

Our SIA students are continuing to make progress on their projects and plans. This past month the focus was branding and marketing for their projects.

GivingPoint staff De’Andre and Jessica presented to the South Fulton and North Fulton cohorts, which allowed for a very hands-on session with the students, giving them a chance to share their successes and struggles when it comes to marketing their projects. GivingPoint recently published a post about tips and tricks for marketing your social impact project, so if you’d like to read more on the topic, check it out!

In-School Social Innovators Academy

Our in-school SIA programs are moving right along as well! Both the Milton and Roswell High School programs had a mix of workshops and one-on-one meetings this month. We can’t wait to see what things these students accomplish!

Upcoming for GivingPoint

This month we have also been busy with a few other things, including finalizing our 2018 Annual Report, and planning our annual Sparks event. Stay tuned for details on both of those projects!
