Interested in making a difference in the nonprofit community and learning to become a social entrepreneur? The GroundWork Group is putting together a young professionals advisory council and you're invited join.

GroundWork group is the collaborative and empowering community solution that enhances the capacity of nonprofits to achieve their missions through information management and technology
. (Go here for more info – http://www.groundwork... and http://ncane.com/79w... )


GroundWork group was founded by a group of passionate energetic volunteers wanting to make a difference in the Columbus Nonprofit world. As GroundWork group matures we want to create a mechanism for continuing to reinvigorate and refresh the volunteer spirit/resources. In particular GroundWork group wants to reach out to young professionals (i.e 18 - 30).
Note: We welcome anyone who want to join the council even if you're not in the 18 - 30 age range. Young can also mean young at heart. smile

Advisory Council Goals:
1. Provide a mechanism for young professionals to make a difference in the nonprofit community
2. Create a "talent" pool for GroundWork group initiatives
3. Create a mechanism to systematically reinvigorate GroundWork group's ideas, networks, passion
4. Identify/teach/cultivate young professionals competent in "social entrepreneurship" to increase the Columbus' fundamental capacity in social entrepreneurship

Why get involved?
- Time effective way to make a difference in local nonprofits
- Ability to learn "social entrepreneurship'
- Meet other like minded individuals in our community
- Pathway to earn leadership (i.e board roles) on nonprofits

Hope to see you soon....
