The Future Project seeks extraordinary Project Panelists for Dream Day II !

Dear GNH Community & Friends:
 
I hope this note finds you well!  The Future Project is seeking extraordinary and diverse Project Panelists for an exciting event called: Dream Day II from 1 - 5 p.m. on Saturday, December 8th, 2012!  (Location TBA)
 
The Future Project is an educational initiative and inspirational movement of young people dedicated to unleashing the incredible power and potential of our generation to be extraordinary visionaries, change-makers, and creative innovators.  The Future Project creates opportunities for high school students to build their own passion-driven social action projects in their schools and communities, and equips them with the necessary skills and human resources to be able to do so.  Dream Day II will be an amazing day of true entrepreneurial spirit in which our 120 students across the City of New Haven will be officially presenting their project plans to a diverse Project Panel of community leaders, organizers, professionals, and entrepreneurs in the City of New Haven.  
 
If you are interested in being a Project Panelist on this day, please let me know by next Wednesday! Your primary role as a Project Panelist would be to listen to students' project pitches and presentations, ask specific questions about their design and implementation, evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of their project plan, offer encouragement, new ideas and any other support that you believe could be helpful in the implementation of their projects, as well as complete a mini-evaluation form to give to them at the end of their presentation.  For more information about The Future Project, click here!
With any questions about this event or any other collaboration ideas you may have, please feel free to reach me at (203) 321 - 5974 or Sarah.tankoos@thefutureproject.org!  I look forward to hearing from you soon!
Sincerely,
Sarah Tankoos, Future City Coordinator
