#BettPassion Workshop with Angela Maiers and declaring Action Plans tomorrow

It has been a little while since I have blogged about our #BettPassion project.

Students are putting the finishing touches to their action plans and tomorrow they will be declaring their action plans to what breaks their heart online. We are going to network our ideas and hopefully people will reach out to help them achieve their goals.

We are currently keeping our fingers crossed that one particular grant is funded next week. We need the money to provide payment for our film crew to document our journey and to also give us money to begin to fund some of the student ideas.

Here is a clip from our workshop day with Angela that kickstarted this project developed by our film crew we hired. This is a small dose of what they can do to showcase the power of our students.

One of the several issues that we are working through on a project of this scale is to have the funds to help students make their dreams a reality. We don't want to ask people for money, we want to provide a service, but at the end of the day we have to have money to bring the ideas to life. This has been our major issue as we continue to dig deep. We have 41 projects so money is needed and there is no simple way to help each group.

Tomorrow be ready! We will be declaring our project and action plans to solve and improve issues we hold dear to our hearts. Be ready to chime in and offer support, expertise, and anything else you can provide. We are excited to help students have their voices and ideas heard. The more they connect with, the better things will be.

See you tomorrow!
