Special Invitation: Serve as a Future Coach | Dream-to-Action Action Marathon | March 5th

Greetings!
On behalf of our entire New Haven team of Dream Directors and high school students, we cordially invite you to serve as a Future Coach for The Future Project's 2nd annual Citywide Dream-to-Action Marathon!
On Saturday, March 5th, up to 150 high school students -- inspired and motivated to bring their passions and dreams to life -- will partner with amazing and supportive Future Coaches (like you!) to help them take action on their Future Projects!
We'd love for you to join us as a Future Coach on March 5th!
From researching engaging activities for their #SelfLove workshop at the Boys & Girls Club to creating catchy flyers for their #ShareYourPassion talent show at their school to mobilizing a team of students to attend their #InspiredSpeakersSeries to asking for mentorship from a local developer in building a website for their new media business -- there are so many actions that students could use your support on during this year's Citywide Dream-to-Action Marathon
After a rigorous 90 minutes of action-taking in teams, students and coaches will unite to present what they've learned and accomplished together!
 
We'd love for you to join us! If you're interested in serving as a Future Coach on March 5th, please Sarah Tankoos (sarah.tankoos@thefutureproject.org)! If you would like to help us find other great Future Coaches (like you!), please forward this invitation to your friends, colleagues, and partners. 

With your help, we can do so much more to support high school students in turning their passions and dreams into action. Thank you in advance for your support!
Citywide Dream-To-Action Marathon
Saturday, March 5th
