The school year may just be kicking off, but we are already looking ahead to next spring! This fall we are hosting our first Saturday SIA program, and we are excited to offer it again starting in the spring of 2020.

Our Saturday SIA program is our traditional 10-month program over the course of one semester, so that students who particpate in specific sports or extracurriculars can better fit the SIA program into their schedule.

 

 

Additionally, we host the program over the course of five Saturdays, instead of after school on weeknights.

The Saturday schedule involves five sessions, each with two to three workshops and built in time to work on project development and receive feedback and support from the GivingPoint staff and SIA peers.  

The workshops covered over the course of SIA include: social entrepreneurship, research and development, project planning, event planning, budgeting, development and fundraising, perfecting your pitch, networking, marketing, strategic leadership, overcoming adversity, sustainability, and the nonprofit process.

Additionally, we have built in time for things such as team building, a nonprofit panel, and practicing and perfecting your pitch. On the day of the final session, there will be short project presentations from all the SIA students, and a celebration with friends and family.

These Saturday sessions will take place from 8:30 AM – 2:00 PM. Lunch will be provided at each workshop. Workshop locations vary, but take place between Downtown Atlanta and North Fulton.

The schedule for spring semester 2020 is still being confirmed, so please check back for more information.

Our Fall 2019 Saturday SIA program has a great group of students, and we can’t wait to see who joins us for Spring 2020.
