Why 90 days?
If you spend just 2% of your time, around 3 hours per week, you'll keep moving toward your goal. With our program, that is plenty of time to progress through the steps of planning and launching a project and making a measurable impact on your community.
Yes, it all happens in just 90 days - but the end of the challenge period is not the end of your impact. In fact, this is just the beginning. Think of it as an accelerator course for your grassroots initiative. It can be a pilot program for something bigger, the first of an annual event, a learning experience that gives you the skills to become a community leader. Once you get started, the sky is the limit. Take that action and join us.
