Join us for MICROSOCIETY'S Inaugural Connections Institute:
Power, Vision, Promise
When communities get behind their children and become truly invested in education, great things happen.
This summer marks the kick-off of our first Connections Institute, a citywide strategy where educators, civic leaders and community members will join forces to transform the educational experience. With more at stake now than ever, we will focus on how our communities can (and should) play a more significant role in better equipping our children with the skills they need to succeed in life and empower youth to play an active role in the revitalization of our cities.
SA2020 serves as the inspiration for this integrated strategy designed to catapult youth readiness and community revitalization. We predict SA2020's community-driven approach will be a model for cities across the country, and we're going to have a chance to learn first-hand how San Antonio civic leaders, parents, nonprofit organizations, and business partners are working together to achieve common goals - and how the same can be started in your own community. The mission of SA2020, a 501c3 nonprofit organization, is to catalyze the entire San Antonio community into passionate, focused, and sustained action to achieve the shared goals that will transform San Antonio into a world-class city by the year 2020 in eleven key vision areas. For more information, go to www.SA2020.org
Be the change you wish to see.
