A dynamic night filled with enthusiasm and inspiration towards nonprofit organizations. Michael Graff-Weisner and Adam Kogeman of Chrysalis, a nonprofit organization providing resources and support to homeless and low-income individuals to find employment and gain a pathway to self-sufficiency, discussed the progression of their training program and five year strategic plan. Chrysalis’ training curriculum was developed and facilitated by volunteers with classes focusing on job preparation, computer and life skills and emphasizing adult learning with interactive exercises emphasizing student participation. Chrysalis has been currently expanding their facilities and continues its mission to find work for people at a time of high unemployment. For more information on Chrysalis, check out their website: www.changelives.org.
