Our organization uses the Work on Purpose curriculum throughout the year as topics at some of our monthly member trainings. These trainings focus primarily on personal growth and development and how you can make a social impact, which ties right in to our goals as VISTA members. This curriculum is a favorite among our members and one of the most well-received throughout the year. Here is the description of Work on Purpose provided by Echoing Green:
"Echoing Green's Work on Purpose program inspires and equips those in the first decade of their careers to realize their unique way to make a social impact—be it as a nonprofit or social business employee, an artist-activist, an effective board member, a high-impact volunteer, a social entrepreneur, or in any number of other potential roles. Through this program, Echoing Green leverages life and work lessons from its social entrepreneurship Fellows to provide inspiration and frameworks to support a wide spectrum of young people seeking to make the world a better place in a way that is uniquely right for them."
