Announcing the NY Youth Success Scrimmage! On August 29th, ReWork is running the New York Youth Success Scrimmage. The Scrimmage partners together exceptional minds (that's you!) from New York communities and organizations leading initiatives focused on building success for New York youth. You will learn and apply rapid prototyping, a key element of the design thinking process, to create solutions to real challenges in education and youth development in the City. To reserve your spot visit: bit.ly/1JkgyWX
Learn a valuable new skill set then apply it to real life high-impact challenges. We have created a high-impact, hands-on event for you to up-skill and take your work to the next level.
1) It's one thing to read about how to be innovative; it's quite another thing to actually DO innovative work. The Scrimmage is a place where you'll quickly learn a highly valuable human centered design skill set -- rapid prototyping -- and be able to apply it. This is a highly collaborative and creative workshop that will help you drive innovation. And, most importantly, on an important social change.
2) You'll be working on real challenges that real organizations are facing. The organizations at the scrimmage will take the insights you help them uncover to reframe and tackle a real challenge within their organization. This is a chance for you to apply your unique life and professional experiences to real-world challenges in the space of youth success. This is a chance to make a tangible impact.
3) The room will be filled with other like-minded, passionate, talented professionals like you. THINK: authentic collaboration, connections, and professional development with impact-driven professionals. And like you, they're awesome!
So, mark your calendar on August 29th for this unique opportunity that you won't want to miss! For more details, check out the Youth Success Scrimmage website.
Join us and get your ticket while you still can. Hope to see you there!
Come out to Crown Heights for the YNPN-NYC #Nonprofiteer Bar Crawl! Join fellow YNPN-NYC members and non-members for an afternoon of sloppy strategic planning and networking.
PowerPlay NYC, a nonprofit that develops girls through sports, and its SuperSTARS Leadership Academy (SSLA), a yearlong girls-youth development program (with an intensive 6-week summer session) for NYC high school girls are seeking internship host sites. PowerPlay NYC's girls get to play a variety of sports, develop workplace and life skills for success, prepare for college and train to become youth leaders in our after-school programs for younger girls.
For the final two weeks of the program, the girls participate in mini-internships at organizations across the city where they get to try out the skills they've learned over the summer. STARWorks internships provide Academy participants with the opportunity to get an introduction to the real world of work in a professional setting. Over the first four weeks of the Academy, participants prepare for their STARWorks internships by focusing on particular workplace skills including: "dress for success," office etiquette, phone skills, computer skills, filing, office equipment use, project participation and interviewing skills.
PowerPlay NYC is looking for hosts for their SuperSTARS! Your participation in this program makes a world of difference to the SSLA participants and allows them to envision and create a successful future for themselves. Internships take place from August 3rd - 13th, 2015. If you or your organization is interested, please fill out this form and PowerPlay NYC be in touch with more information shortly.
When: Thursday, July 9, 2015, 7:00 PM
Where: LMHQ (150 Broadway, 20th Floor)
What: Charitable giving in the U.S. has hovered around 2% of GDP for nearly four decades. Minor increases in this rate could have a massive impact on the health of our nonprofit sector. In this meet-up, we'll hear from nonprofit leaders as they discuss strategies on how we might increase charitable giving; from corporate giving, major gifts, and moving casual donors into regular givers.
Why: Learn from leaders. Network with like-minds. Spread the word. Also, free drinks provided by Sixpoint Brewery!
Speakers will include Ami Dar (Founder of Idealist.org) and Tony Martignetti (Host of Nonprofit Radio).
Ami Dar has created an online supermarket for social action which makes it possible for just about anybody to act on their desire to change society for the better: Idealist.org, one of the most popular nonprofit resources on the web, with information provided by 100,000 organizations around the world and millions of visitors every month.
Tony hosts a weekly podcast, Tony Martignetti Nonprofit Radio, which is devoted to helping small and mid-size nonprofits in all areas of challenge, from fundraising to finance to donor relations.
