The summary of the event: GET OUT THERE AND DO SOMETHING! To help provide some direction, I put together a Post-Event Resource Document on how to get involved in City Government as well as with our many non-profits through volunteer opportunities. This document is by no means all encompassing but it is a place to start. We challenge you to go to the volunteer opportunities and sign up.
If you have information you think should be added or if you want to talk to us about follow up from the event, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
What does RVA Dirt do now?
It goes without saying that we will continue doing what we have been doing but we have spent a lot of time talking about this and we have a couple of action items we will be executing on in 2017:
- Monthly RVA Together Volunteer Days: At our event we hosted the amazing organization Higher Achievement to share their volunteer opportunities with everyone. Starting in January 2017, we plan on picking a different non-profit to focus on for the month and have a scheduled group volunteer day with them.
- Monthly Accountability Reports: Through #StoneyWatch we will be releasing monthly summaries of #RVAMayor, #RVACouncil, and #RPSBoard decisions and actions.
- Events: Maybe, we will see. ;-)
