It has been a challenging few weeks, as the world reacts with uncertainty to the Coronavirus. Please know we miss seeing our Venturers, Changemakers and the staff at our partner schools. We hope you are staying safe and healthy! And we look forward to seeing you all again when this has passed.

. We were very much looking forward to hearing from our Changemaking Venture Teams. However, we have a new, cool plan for you! Since part of being a Venturer includes overcoming obstacles and finding solutions, we have an idea! If your Venture Team applied to showcase your Venture at the event, we would love it if you would
create a video of what your Team is about
(while still practicing social distancing, of course!).
Post it to your social media profiles and we'll share it to all of ours so you can get the exposure and applause that you deserve.
Get as creative as possible (sketch, commercial, Broadway musical, it's your call!).
