We plan to carry on our fundraising for Roots & Shoots and JGI. In our first fundraising project, "Grass Roots & Shoots" we approached people we knew and worked with and raised a substantial amount of funding. With this project, we are ready to take it to the next level. We will approach foundations, businesses and individuals as well. We will also work with the kids we mentor and teach them about fundraising and how they can make a difference in the world.
My project will show that the younger generations care about their older members of their community by supporting their living at home.
Our project will bring awareness to the Jane Goodall Institute and the work that Roots & Shoots members around the world do. I will spread the word and share information about JGI in posters and public speaking events.
This project's goal will be accomplished by this Roots & Shoots club raising money through personal fundraising, bakesales, etc to reach our goal.
My project will bring programs and services to referring partners, comprised of local shelters and organizations, so that we cover several areas in our community instead of just one. At each location, we'll have programs (such as tutoring, art, and physical activity), targeted for each age group, to use with the children. Besides being an educational service, my already existing school Hope For Homeless Club will become the main chapter of my nonprofit project. Through creating more high school chapters, there will be an emphasis put on student involvement while also reaching a larger community. Through our network of volunteers, my project is completely volunteer-run under a 501c3 fiscal sponsor, composed of a team and advisory board. With the help of the ANNpower Fellowship, I have gained a lot of connections and community support to take my project to the next level and be implemented by this fall.
