In the Spring of 2012, EcoRise executive director, Gina LaMotte, created an online fundraising campaign called "Start Some Good." The campaign video helped raise funds to put the EcoRise curriculum in new schools in Austin.
UpLift Austin | KIPP Projects | SPRING 2011
UpLift is half way through our second year at KIPP Austin Collegiate, and ready to begin project design and implementation this spring! Project ideas include:
- TRANSFORM an existing outdoor seating area into a functional classroom and lounge, incorporating modular furniture.
- CREATE an intentional student pathway, incorporating signage, benches and raised garden beds.
- ENLIVEN the inside of the new school building, utilizing bright colors and public art.
- DESIGN and build an artistic privacy fence to conceal views of mechanical equipment.
This spring, students will work with architects and artists to design and implement these projects. The semester will culminate in a CommUNITY Presentation and Celebration on May 13!
