For one of my clients, I'm currently facilitating a social entrepreneurship project with a class of high school seniors (17-18 year olds). They are forming teams and coming up with a plan to launch a socially-conscious business project. Ultimately they will be presenting their projects to a team of local business and community leaders.
As part of the class, we have set up a Ning community where they will be interacting, sharing their project information, etc. I would like for them to receive input and feedback from a broader community than just the local area as I think that will only add to their ability to create great final projects. I think they could also benefit from some exposure to the world beyond their County.
So here's my request--tearing a page from the Vicki Davis book, I'm asking for virtual volunteers. If this sounds like something you'd enjoy participating in, please send me an email indicating your interest and if you blog, a link to your blog. I will then coordinate with you on joining the community. You can contribute as much or as little as you'd like and you will be able to do so in your own time frame. If you've never used Ning before, it will also give you a chance to see how it works, which might give you some ideas for using it for your own programs or organization. AND you can see how I try to build a plane while I'm flying it. If nothing else, that should be a great incentive!
