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!
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.
DATE OF MEETING: May 18, 2017
BOARD MEMBERS IN ATTENDANCE: Alyssa, Aubrey, Becky, Earl, Erin, Julia, Justin, Katherine, Prarthana
STAFF MEMBERS IN ATTENDANCE: Nick Collins, Rachel Hemmerstein, Connor Spahn
ABSENT: Aisha, Amanda C, Amanda S., Kate, Kristin, Lauren T., Lauren V., Marissa, Sarah

By now there have been countless passionate and profound words written about the 2016 US Presidential Election, and we want to share some of them with you as well as create a space (in the comments section below) for you to share any that you find motivating, empowering, or healing.
It’s that time of the month again fellow Feelgooders. We just recently sent out our most recent Feelwhat?! newsletter and it is incredibly amazing. As you can probably guess, with the school year having just begun, Feelgood has been very busy. We recently expanded our Feelgood family having just welcomed new board committee members!
But that’s not all! Click here!! and come and take a look at what we have going on so far!
We are so excited for the upcoming year and cannot wait to see the enthusiasm, passion, and success that everyone will bring to Feelgood.
That’s it for now, Cheesy Humans, talk to you soon!!
As changemakers, we are all invested in this movement. The FeelGood movement. A movement that has empowered youth leaders across North America, which has resulted in more conversations and more actions toward reaching the goal of ending extreme poverty by 2030.
