As if our news about the Gifford Grant wasn't enough, SciExcite has more to share with our followers! We were recently selected as the first high schooler team to participate in the prestigious CNY Community Foundation's The Leadership Classroom, a 9-month long training program, which "through intensive and interactive training sessions with other resident leaders, The Leadership Classroom teaches the practical skills that help make stronger, more effective neighborhood and grassroots leaders."
We are so thrilled for this opportunity, and we'd love to thank Daryl Files for pushing us to apply for it! The workshop meets once a month all year, where we will learn the best ways to run our not-for-profit, write grants, and much more! At the end, we will be provided with a generous grant to get a project going!
We are so thankful for this amazing opportunity, and we can't wait for our first workshop this Saturday!
