The director of The High Impact Network (THINK), a Harvard Law School student sent the message below. There are some very interesting activities included as well as the possibility for starting a group. Worth the read:
THINK starts college chapters that lead workshops and games on how to most effectively make the world a better place. These activities are highly interactive and show how to put the ideas into practice.
As you are reading this, 30 THINK chapters are launching at colleges in the US, Canada, UK, Australia, Sweden, Brazil, and India. We are cultivating a global community of highly effective and caring people to make the world a better place. Check out our website at www.thehighimpactnetwork.org.
If you want to improve the world, it is incredibly important to:
1. Know the most pressing causes, from extreme poverty and animal welfare to environmental and global risks.
2. Know the most promising paths to addressing these – which careers and research avenues to pursue, and which organizations and charities to support.
3. Gain the skills to excel on those paths – boost your intelligence, compassion, and productivity.
We’re designing lots of group activities and games within these areas for chapters to choose from (you can also make your own). Here are ten of them: www.thehighimpactnetwork.org/modules
We’re looking for passionate and organized students to lead a THINK chapter at Syracuse University. Leading a chapter primarily involves organizing events, where you guide members through the group activities and have periodic social events. (It’s not that hard – we have resources for you and a support team standing by to help with logistics – and it’s a nice resume booster.)
If you’d like to be a chapter founder at Syracuse University, let us know at email@example.com. And please send me any questions you have!
