Amplify Hope Challenge Week One Launch!
The Collaborate 317 training room was packed for week one of the Amplify Hope Program Challenge an program Co-Founder Josh Bach did an amazing job as MC.
The energy in the room was incredible as Amplify Indy Founder Harrison Painter shared the vision of the Amplify Hope Challenge. The members of this incubator for social entrepreneurs representing 41 emerging non-profits learned that they will be part of a 10 month program led by 4+ mentors that offers weekly trainings, bi-weekly mastermind sessions, monthly accountability groups, 9 creative challenges, a large competitive fundraiser event, and an Amplify Awards event to close out the program on October 20, 2018.
Here is a video of Amplify Indy Founder Harrison Painter sharing the details of the program:
Next up was Amplify Hope Program resident storyteller Polly Riddell shared a special opportunity offered by Christian Phone Book for all of our members! Each of them will be able to get a free listing in the Christian Phone Book for 2018!
We then had Amplify Hope Program mentor Charles Gyunn take some time to talk about the importance of compliance and touched on what is needed for a 501(c)(3) Form 990. Throughout the month of January our team will be performing evaluations of each of the non-profits to fully understand where they are today, and what they need help with the most.
Last but not least Amplify Hope Program mentor Luke Keay led the main training session. His class was Visions 101 and he shared valuable information on optimizing your non-profit business plan for 2018, including budgets, board selection, and goal setting.
To close things out program co-founder Bruce Ford shared some insight into the success of the Hope Center Indy, and offered the opportunity for us to spend the day out at the Hope Center for a training event.
The members were even treated to a BONUS session with Andy Dix and AD Growth Advisors about setting priorities, goal setting, and getting more organized in 2018.
We could not have asked for a better kick-off of the Amplify Hope Challenge! This week the members will be attending their first mastermind session. These session are used to talk about challenges our members are facing, and as a group we focus on creating solutions. The mission is to empower those who are struggling, and to celebrate the success of members when they achieve their goals.
*We still have room for 9 more non-profit and are taking applications until January 31, 2018. If you would like to apply please visit our application page on Collaborate 317 website by CLICKING HERE.
