FeelGood’s Next Executive Director

I’m thrilled to share with you that FeelGood is formally launching its search for an Executive Director!

Just over a year ago we first shared that FeelGood had begun the process of succession planning. Since then, we have continued our focus on building relationships and developing leadership capacity throughout our movement. Our board of directors and subsequent committees – comprised of students and alumni of the FeelGood movement – continues to partner closely with staff to further the reach of our program. With each month, there’s a stronger shared holding of our movement’s vision, direction, and priorities. With this, our decisions and processes are informed by the collective insight and wisdom of the whole – that means everything from care packages to chapters to our newly revised bylaws!

The Biggest Cheese

By Aubrey Redd, Big Cheese Content Manager, Program Development Chair, and President of West Chester FeelGood

Earlier this month, FeelGood hosted the Big Cheese Summer Institute in Bryn Athyn, PA. Students traveled from all corners of North America, including Canada, to represent 18 of the incredible chapters in the movement. The students, the core of the movement, were not the only people present at the Big Cheese. They were joined by the Changemaker Ignitors, FeelGood staff, the (student-led) Big Cheese Planning Committee and partner organization representatives.

Charlottesville

A reflection by Rachel Hemmerstein, Acting Executive Director of FeelGood, in the wake of recent events in Charlottesville.

Events like the terrorism that occurred in Charlottesville call into question all we know and all we hold dear. They should – because they’re terrifying. They show us the worst part of being a human, and they leave us feeling many things – shell shocked, angry, in despair. They leave me wanting to dismiss the people involved as inhuman, as cruel, as evil. But…it also feels like that’s the easy way out.

The Spring 2017 Weekly FeelGood Chronicles!

Students know they are making a difference in the world by volunteering at their deli and having conversations about systemic poverty. But, they want a name to connect with their sandwich. They want stories to share with their customers. They want to celebrate the successes of empowered women, educated children, new businesses, access to sanitation, a protected environment, and a better world.
