WHO: You have an idea that can create positive change in the world around you. You’re likely in the very early stages of thinking through this idea and need some support and structure to help you.

WHY: The BIG purpose of this program is to help current or aspiring change-makers make their community - and their world, a better place. We know everyone needs support along the way and we want to help get you out of your head and start working on your idea.

HOW: B4C Start is a 6-week online virtual program in which you will gain access to multi-level curriculum, be introduced to the change-making ecosystem, and attend virtual evening sessions once a week to ask questions with other peers. Upon completing the course work, you’ll also have access to an in-person follow-up to discuss your goals and barriers with a B4C instructor.

Classes are released weekly and you can access them online what ever time is best for you!

If you decide that you would like to pursue your idea further, you may consider applying for the B4C Cohort!

Fall 2019 B4C Start Program Kickoff: October 12th
