Spark & Inspire: Build a Bridge
May 5, 2020 @ 4:30 pm - 5:30 pm HST
After an exciting launch in 2019, HawaiiKidsCAN and Teach For America Hawaiʻi are excited to announce Spark & Inspire Week, a three-day virtual experience from May 5, 6, 7 where we will host 3 separate 60 minute events with each project getting its own feature night. We have an exciting new format for the pitches, and presenters will be on hand after for a question and answer session with resource experts and audience members.
