Government By and For Millennial America Workshop

Event post by and for Amy Davis ’13:

Do you believe our government reflects values of democracy, efficiency, equality, and flexibility? Do you think we need to change
how we govern ourselves in the 21st century? On Inauguration Day 2013 the Roosevelt Institute will submit to the White House a report compiled from campuses around the country on what we, the Millennials, think the role of our government should be. Make sure Wesleyan’s voice is heard! By participating in a Government By and For workshop you will provide invaluable data and new ideas for the final report. Help us get the conversation started about what our generation wants to see from our leadership! For more information, watch the video, click here, or contact Amy (aedavis@wes) or Joel (jhochman@wes).

Date: Tuesday, November 27
Time: 8:00 pm
Place: PAC 107

Josh Levine ’12 Talks Venture For America

From the super cool Adam Rashkoff ’13:

Once you graduate, do you want to take a job that teaches you valuable career skills, puts you in with a supportive peer group, encourages you to think creatively, and empowers you to contribute to social good?

If you answered YES to these questions, you may be interested in Venture For America, a new nonprofit organization that matches high achieving college students with full-time jobs (read: NOT internships) at start-up companies in cities across the country.

VFA Fellows attend an intense summer training program in broadly applicable business skills (i.e. financial analysis/modeling, project management, sales, search engine optimization/marketing, taking care of business, etc.) before spending two years working at a start-up company that fits their individual skills, interests, and experience. Note that this opportunity is open to students from all majors, and no prior business experience is required.
