At the event I got to meet many other social entrepreneurs who are working in non profits all over New England and network with folks working on issues of food security, job training, sustainable agriculture, economic development and much more.There’s nothing like a little outside feedback to let us know we’re doing something really great here at Yestermorrow – something which is unique, innovative, and part of a larger movement of social change. And this award will help raise awareness about the school as a whole, and provide critical support for the launch of our new semester program initiative.
Here’s me accepting the big check:
Thanks again to all of you for your help. With this award and support from additional funders we have raised $30,000 towards the $50,000 needed to get our semester program off the ground. You can help us reach our goal by the end of 2010 by donating online and designating your contribution towards the semester program.
