Tomorrow, Net Tuesday, November 12 will feature our Crowdsourcing Change format, during which a couple of local nonprofits show how they've been using the social web, and then get feedback and advice from the crowd (i.e., the attendees).
So, join the crowd and provide some advice, feedback and support to:
• The Agatston Urban Nutrition Initiative (http://www.urbannutrition.org).
Presenter: Ashley Gripper, Administrative Coordinator.
The Agatston Urban Nutrition Initiative (UNI) works to sustain healthy communities by promoting food education, good nutrition and physical fitness in West Philadelphia. UNI’s organizes hands-on learning opportunities for more than 10,000 students and their families at 20 public schools and community centers in Philadelphia.
• The West Philly Coalition for Neighborhood Schools (http://westphillyschools.org).
Presenters: Amara Rockar, Board President and Erin McLeary, Board Vice President.
The West Philly Coalition for Neighborhood Schools (WPCNS) is focused on a core belief that public education is a social justice issue. Its members, many of whom are parents from a wide range of ethnicities, income brackets, and educational backgrounds, share a vision of a neighborhood strengthened by its school and a school strengthened by its neighborhood.
The event will be held at the Friends Center, 1501 Cherry Street. Doors open at 6:00 PM on the evening of Tuesday, November 12. Light fare will be available, and RSVP's are appreciated for planning, but not required.
Whether you’re a social media expert or an interested citizen your perspectives and opinions are welcome and valuable. So, come and join the crowd with your questions, insights and reactions, and help these local organizations more effectively use social tools to achieve their important objectives. This is a great learning and sharing opportunity – not only for the presenting organizations, but for all participants!
