We had a blast this week on a California road trip to work with community organizations and support their capacity in online communications and technology strategy.
Today, we are in awe of the amazing members of the eAdvocacy mentoring cohort! We have our final 2012 live in-person training and wanted to shout out some of the amazing contributions and growth of the crew!

We had a great time training at the Coalition On Regional Equity Convening a project of the Sacramento Housing Alliance.
Thanks to everyone that attended the Advancing Organizational Goals through Social Media session and contributed to the conversation. It was great to have youth and adults in the same room talk about issues with online communications.
We had a fabulous time with the many amazing folks who attended the First-Ever California Nonprofit Technology Festival in Fresno, California generously funded by the California Consumer Protection Foundation.
From online mapping to email newsletters to building a simple website, we focused on crowd-requested topics and created real time breakout sessions where people could get their questions answered as well as connect with others.
Jessica Steimer and Uno Nam are the newest members of the team here at Aspiration.

The program under which they are working, called HandsOn Tech, is sponsored by the Points of Light Institute based in Atlanta and incorporates 24 VISTAs in seven cities, all with the shared focus of using technology to make organizations more efficient and more effective in supporting their mission.
