Coming of Age is presenting a FREE workshop, “Lessons Learned: Purpose Prize Winners & Fellows Share Insights with Aspiring Social Entrepreneurs,” on Saturday, November 13, 10 AM to 1 PM, WHYY, 150 N. 6th Street, Philadelphia.

This workshop will be part of the Purpose Prize Summit—to be held for the first time in Philadelphia! The Purpose Prize, created by Civic Ventures, awards up to $100,000 each to 10 people in encore careers creating new ways to solve tough social problems.

In this workshop, six Purpose Prize winners and fellows will share their thoughts on:

  • How an idea for social change becomes a vibrant reality.
  • What combination of inspiration, imagination, and perseverance is needed to build a project that truly helps heal the world.
  • What sorts of skill sets, vision, energy and fortitude are needed to make this happen.
  • What experiences shaped their ideas, first steps, risks taken, and… the lessons they have lessons learned.

Following a panel discussion, the Purpose Prize winners and fellows will work with participants in small groups.

Only 35 aspiring social entrepreneurs/young nonprofit professionals will be selected for the session (which includes lunch). To apply, click here. PLEASE SUBMIT YOUR APPLICATION NO LATER THAN OCTOBER 22
