You have an idea to make your community better. But you’re feeling overwhelmed, afraid, unsure, and more. Now what?
Idealist can help.
All you need to do is share your story with us: what you want to do and why, the challenges you’re facing, the help you’re seeking. We’ll post it on this blog for our extremely knowledgeable and friendly community to name resources, give advice, and perhaps most importantly, cheer you on.
I know it can be scary to put your idea out there. But chances are, people will think it’s awesome too. Don’t believe me?
- Erica felt extremely motivated by all the positive enthusiasm she received, and is in the middle of writing a play that includes elements of her hospice work.
- Shannon has several leads to collaborate with others who want to connect U.S. and Afghan youth, including a penpal organization in New Mexico.
- Melanie learned more about theatre of the oppressed practitioners and organizations that might want to work with her in the Portland area, and the support from others has helped her gain momentum on her idea.
No matter what stage you’re at, a small push can go a long way. Let us help you take your next step.
