It didn't take me long to figure out that I was a problem solver. You know, the one the family calls on when something goes down. The girlfriend you run to first when your man isn't acting right. I've always had a knack for staring a problem head on and breaking it down into small, conquerable pieces. It was this knack for problem solving that landed me in an interesting field: social work. I am a social worker, trained to assess and guide people through solving their own problems. So why did I create this school? Because I've been in the nonprofit sector for over 10 years and have seen small communities who have the passion and skills, but need the knowledge to put forth their visions. I have created courses and other content to help you design processes to solve your ultimate problem: how to translate your passion into mission.
