GRACE student missions kick off

Fun to be a part of GRACE's student missions kick off this past weekend. [Disclosure: my family and I attend Grace, they are one of Ember's clients, and I serve as an adviser to the missions director.] Like I've said before - when learning from an org like this, keep in mind that they are very mature. Operating at this level requires doing these kinds of things for years and years and learning the whole time. So keep that in mind - like maybe don't use them as a baseline.

This weekend was a mandatory parents meeting, where their team outlined the opportunities, some of the strategy and connected interested parents with point people. They also gave out this great handout as well as a calendar of everything student missions related for the next 8 months.

Lots of bold thinking with this crew. That's part of the fun of it.
