Going To Do Something

Today I’m going to be in New York City helping out with a very cool program run by DoSomething.org called Boot Camp. Young folks will have been part of this for a few days and this afternoon they get to pitch their ideas to the likes of people like me. These are all youth who are involved in non profits and also those who have ideas for their own future projects.

So I am going to be a Speed Catcher.

This is an excerp from their Speed Catching brief:

“In the style of speed dating, Boot Camp attendees will rotate around the room and have 2 minutes to “pitch” their project or organization to not-for-profit and corporate professionals (you). You will have 2 minutes to provide a brief evaluation on the success and weakness of their pitch.”

What a cool concept. I will expand on this blog tomorrow. My goal is to learn as much as I might teach.

It Is Possible.
