Design for Good: Breakfast Club with Growing Home and NowPow
A casual monthly get-together for designers interested in using their work for social good
- March 7
- 8:00 AM – 9:30 AM
- ACME Hotel Company
The Design for Good Breakfast Club series is a casual monthly get together over coffee to connect designers who are interested in using design for good, to meet one another, and highlight the needs of social initiatives. Our goal is to ensure social initiatives find designers who are interested in helping them to grow.
Growing Home has a vision of a world of healthy people and communities. Everyone deserves to have a good job, and everyone deserves to eat well. That’s why Growing Home has been helping people find meaningful careers through skills learned while farming since 2002. Growing Home is Chicago’s leading expert in farm-based training for people with employment barriers. By providing 25 hours per week of paid on-the-job experience and job-readiness training at our farms, plus the support to conquer issues like criminal records, medical needs, child-care, and housing, we have changed the lives of hundreds of workers, and thousands of their family members.
NowPow connects people to high quality community resources to help address their chronic health and social conditions or just stay well. From stress management to smoking cessation, fitness classes to family planning, NowPow makes it easy to leverage knowledge into action
