Social Change. These are words we hear bandied about on an almost daily basis, but how is it happening? In this intensive one-day course we will cover what creates the momentum for true change - from stories of social effort in action to the best ways to address needs and find ways to draw attention to the causes that matter to your audience, from creating person to person connections to tapping in to the funding you need to create a shift in our culture.

You will learn how to connect with the people who share your specific set of values and what pitfalls to avoid. Setting up a crowdfunding campaign is as easy as clicking a few buttons online, but creating true social change and setting a campaign in motion that moves people takes hard work and heart. This class will take you to the intersection of both through storytelling, blogging, and crowdfunding and it will help you to begin the journey that best matches your path to social change.
