June was all about our summer Social Innovators Academy!
These two groups of SIA students were some of the most passionate go-getters we have had the pleasure to work with! The first two weeks of June were filled with back-to-back SIA programs. Although we are now done with summer SIA, there are still a few spots available for our fall 2019 Saturday SIA program: learn more and apply online today!
Our first summer program was in downtown Atlanta, at Constellations, from June 3 to 7. We hosted seven students from seven different schools in the Atlanta area and beyond! Read the full recap of the week here, and stay tuned for spotlights on all these rockstar students.
The following week, June 10 to 14, we hosted our North Fulton SIA program at The Cottage School in Roswell. We worked with eight awesome students from all over North Fulton, including a SIA group project! You can read the whole recap here, and check back for student spotlights over the next month.
We want to take a moment to say thank you to everyone who made our summer SIA program successful! We could not do the work we do without the support of our workshop presenters who share their expertise, our panelists and judges who share their experience, and the parents who support their students!
While we spent time with a whole new group of students, we haven’t forgotten about the awesome work of our previous students! This month we showcased Julia H. from Roswell High School, and Emory P. from Walton High School.
Upcoming for GivingPoint
July is all about planning for the future! We are getting ready for our fall 2019 Saturday SIA program and preparing to kick off the 2019-2020 school year. We are also excited to be working on a new project to supplement our Social Innovators Academy framework, so that we can bring SIA to even more students and schools in Georgia and beyond!
