Want to Lead Your Own Social Change Project or Organization? Check Out the DoSomething.org Social Action Bootcamp
One of the requests I often get is for information about launching a nonprofit or social change project. While I know of several resources for this type of endeavor, I am super excited that DoSomething.org, an organization that empowers young people to take action, has teamed up with Justgood.tv to live stream their Social Action Boot Camp from San Francisco! Beyond watching the boot camp, you’ll be able to interact with participants and ask questions. So here’s a great chance to get more information on being a social change agent for a cause you care about.
I’m sharing the live stream here and more details about the event are below. I hope you find this useful!
