Happy Holidays and a Prosperous New Year!
Hello mentors and supporters of EDGEucation,
We hope you are having an amazing holiday season, and that 2012 will be filled with great adventures. To wrap up 2011, we wanted to share a few of our accomplishments, and let you know what we have planned for 2012.
This year we:
-Welcomed Jorel Guilloty as part of our external Board of Directors
-Had an amazing mentor mixer event at Charles Schwab’s headquarters and LAM, where we screened the movie ‘Miss Representation’ by Jennifer Newsom
-Worked with two new schools in San Francisco, including for the first time a high school
-EDGEucation submitted an application to become tax exempt! This will allow us to receive larger donations as a tax exempt organization, and help our programs grow
While we are very excited about our accomplishments, we understand that there is still a lot of work to do. In 2012, there are our goals:
-Create an internal Board of Directors that can take EDGEucation to the next level. Specifically, we are looking for strong leaders in the areas of events/programming, teacher/production, webmaster/communication, and a secretary. If you are interested and would like to get more information please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
-Increase the number of students in our program in San Francisco by 20%
Continue and expand our collaborations efforts with other organizations such as Charles Schwab, Twitter, and local organizations
-Start working on a university scholarship for graduating high school students
We thank you for all your support, and we challenge you to impact someone’s life by mentoring them. We would like to give special thanks to our speakers Laura Gomez (Twitter), and Claudia Galvan (Microsoft), keep on rocking ladies!
Thank you all again for your continued support,
