    Thank you for joining us last night at our April Change Makers Happy Hour! We had such a blast meeting new Be Social Change Makers and reconnecting with familiar faces. We all left so inspired by the passion and energy that ignited the space! You might have heard the team talking up a storm about our Maker Institute Indiegogo campaign! If you had a good time last night and believe in what Be Social Change is creating please consider donating to help us keep building! We have some pretty sweet perks too :) Have a look here: Stay tuned for announcements for next months happy hour as well as a couple of amazing learning events coming up: Social Good Startup Stories: Celebrating Success and Failure in Crowdfunding and The Future of Education Part 3! Also, we posted some photos from last night. Feel free to tag yourself! Looking forward to connecting soon, Marcos, Sarit, Amanda, and Allie

    A wonderful experience, that made very obvious, among other things, how much I need a website and business cards. It was quite enjoyable.

    I'll be at the event tonight and looking to connect with anyone interested in Junior Board opportunities at a community center focused on education and family services for some of the poorest but most dedicated and driven young families in New York. The community we serve is mostly comprised of immigrant families. If you are interested send me a message and I'll make sure to find you tonight to tell you more!!

    Hi Everyone, we're looking forward to seeing you soon!

    We will be located on the second floor of the Smithfield with name tags. We'll have our Be Social Change name tag and a second sticker (if you'd like to use it) to share if you're looking for, or can offer, a particular connection or resource.

    Also, feel free to get the conversation started and post here if there is anything in particular that you are looking for or can offer the group at the happy hour (i.e. if you are looking for connections in education or have an opportunity for a job at your business).

    See you tonight! Marcos, Sarit, Amanda, and Allie

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
