A message from the nice folks at StartingBloc:
StartingBloc seeks the next generation of Social Innovators! For over eight years, StartingBloc has helped social innovators address the most pressing global challenges of our time by giving them the skills and the tools they need to maximize their impact. Our signature leadership development program, the StartingBloc Fellowship exposes young leaders to new models for achieving social impact. The Fellowship begins with a transformative five-day Institute for Social Innovation, which is the gateway to the Fellowship. The StartingBloc community currently consists of 1900 Fellows representing more than 221 colleges and over 55 countries. The application to our 2013 Detroit Institute for Social Innovation is now open. The deadline is 11:59pm EST, April 30, 2013. Learn more about the Fellowship, and the DET ’13 Institute, and apply online!
