" I'm excited to be a fellow because of the community and support it provides. It's daunting to want to make change but not know where to start, so that community of people also learning and growing around me will be able to teach and learn from me as we all put our projects into place. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Lovely Acts
My project, Lovely Acts aims to bridge the gap between students interested in social impact work that don't know where to start and organizations looking for help in small but meaningful ways. By connecting students to small opportunities to make a difference, the idea of beinning to help with social impact work becomes less daunting and more accessible, encouraging students who previously never considered lending a helping hand to do something good!
