Leveraging Dallas College Resources to Support Local Nonprofits (National Nonprofit Day)

Video Transcript

All right. Good morning, everyone. It is 9:00 AM, so we're going to go ahead and get started this this morning. First and foremost, happy National Nonprofit Day, everyone. Much as I've done in prior in prior webinars, I would love to start with a little bit of history on National Profit Day. Basically, every year we come together on August 17th to celebrate.

National Nonprofit Day. This day commemorates the incredible work of nonprofit organizations around the world that are dedicated to making a different difference in people's lives. This holiday was first established in 1992. I had no idea, and it was established by Congress as an opportunity for nonprofits and their supporters to organize. Excuse me to reorganize and thank all those who contribute time, energy, and resources.

Towards philanthropic causes and let's take and so we want to take this date today to show our appreciation to these amazing individuals because I mean, that's precisely what we're here today to do in this presentation. We are working to ensure that Dallas College.

I'm sorry that we're here to ensure today that Dallas County is a vibrant, growing and economically vibrant future for. Is economically vibrant for future generations. One way we're achieving this is by supporting the nonprofits that are entrenched in doing the grassroots work to empower and elevate local communities in this session.

You're going to learn about Dallas college resources and networks that you can leverage to maximize your nonprofit outreach and grow your impact. Before we get started, I wanted to talk about a couple of housekeeping points. So please feel free to use the chat box and ask questions as we go through the as we go through our presentation and additionally.

At the very end of today's presentation, we're going to go ahead and send out an e-mail to all of the attendees. The email's going to contain today's presentation, contact information and further resources. You're always welcome to respond to that communication. If you have any other questions or concerns that comes up that come up later. Now with that.

My name is Moises Ramirez and I'm the Director of Business Engagement here at Dallas College. As today's moderator, allow me to introduce you to today's presenter, Jonathan Estrada. Jonathan is a Director of Community Relations and Solutions for In for Dallas College. In just this past year, he's partnered with over 25 nonprofit organizations to host numerous events and connect organizations.

And the community with resources at Dallas College, Jonathan has over 11 years of experience working with federal grants. Over the course of his career, he has he's worked to better prepare students for a for the various challenges they would face in their educational journey. Originally from Fort Worth, TX, Jonathan earned his Bachelor of Art in Public Relations from the University of Texas in Arlington.

And he's a proud son of a migrant farmer and a factory worker who emphasized the value of an education and modeled a strong work ethic. His passion? He is passionate about work. Are working with our community and works in every day to improve their chances of success. Jonathan, why don't you go ahead and take over for us. What do you have today? All right. Well, good morning, everyone. Thank you, Moi, for the introduction. Happy National Nonprofit day.

So, one thing I left out for my bio is that I prior to my role with Dallas College, I worked in the nonprofit sector for three years and I helped a friend get his nonprofit off the ground. And we started with two grants and then currently today they have a total of 10 grants, and they serve.

Communities from Cleburne all the way over here to South Dallas. So, it's good to see them grow. And I also recognize that, you know, whenever you're working in nonprofits, you wear a lot of hats. You have to be the marketing department, you got to be the recruiting department, you got to be the accounting department. And so, we try to do here at Dallas College is we try to help give y'all a bit more resources so that we can better help serve those that are in our programs and those that participate.

So, a brief overview of what we're going to go through today is the nonprofit services that we offer here at Dallas College. We're going to talk about, you know, where we begin with our discovery meetings, how you can join our networks and coalition meetings, the micro training sessions, and then finally we're going to discuss the events and partnerships. So, the first thing we do whenever we're meeting with our nonprofit partners is we set up discovery meetings. So, a lot of times these discovery meetings come from.

Us being out of the community will be at different fairs, will be at different networking events and we run into different nonprofits, and we make that connection. Let him know. It's like, hey, we have a lot of things at Dallas College we like to offer to y’all, and we'd like to set up discovery meetings, so.

We set those up and then sometimes we also get from, like, Moy will send me over if he meets a nonprofit while he's at a chamber meeting or something like that, he sends it to me, and we set up the discovery meeting. So, at these discovery meetings, we get to know a little bit more about your department and about your organization. What y'all do, who do y'all serve? What areas do y'all serve? And then on the other side, we come in and see where Dallas College can fit in. So currently, for example, I'm working with a nonprofit that helps veterans.

So, they were wondering, you know, how do we connect our veteran population with Dallas College's veteran resources? So, I'm don't have any experience in veteran’s work. However, I do know the Veterans Department and I can help connect you to them. Same thing goes for, you know, I worked with the Boys and Girls Club recently and they're wanting an information session about Dallas College. As much as I like to think I know everything about Dallas College.

We have people here with our coaching team that know a lot more than I do. So, I was able to set up a meeting with them. So, I may not be the expert in the field, but I can definitely help connect you to them. And so that's what we do in those discovery meetings. We see those opportunities and then we help connect partners to those different organizations within Dallas College that they need help with.

So, another thing we do is whenever we know connect you with these departments, we're big system and sometimes you know there's a lot of times in the past where people have gotten lost in the system, lost in the emails and you know there the ball was dropped somewhere along the way. So what our department takes pride in is that whenever we do make that connection with you and we do connect you with another department, we're there through the whole experience so that you know we make sure that you get great customer service and then we're able to help serve that your program participants.

Also at these meetings, sometimes, you know, bigger projects come out of these meetings. They're wanting something more than just, you know, someone coming in to talk about programs we have here in Dallas College. They want to learn how to set up GED classes, how to set up ESL classes for their coworkers or for their, you know, participant program participants. So, for that point, I help introduce them to those departments and then we set the next steps. Oh, you see, depending on what the need is for the event, who do we need to bring to the table?

What you know, who are the, the, the big players that we need to bring in to make these, you know, these opportunities happen and be most successful. So that's usually what we do at a discovery meeting. The next thing that we do in our department is our networks and coalition meetings. So much like today, we love to get all of our nonprofits together to have coalition meetings. So, at these coalition meetings they take place about quarterly.

And right now, we offer them for our faith-based coalition and our social services coalition, our faith-based coalition. We had people from all different faiths show up. We had Muslim representatives, we had Christian, and we had Catholic, and all different other kinds of denominations show up to talk about the needs of their congregations and to see where Dallas College can come in at our nonprofit coalition meetings. Yes Sir.

I'm sorry, Jonathan, I was going to say these coalition meetings tend to be really interactive and energetic. So, one of the questions I was going to ask is when you guys are having these coalition meetings, do you also invite other team members like for example, the veteran’s department to participate in network at the same time?

Yes, Sir. So that's one of the things we do like to offer at these different coalition meetings is, you know, we're constantly growing and changing as Dallas College and new opportunities are coming to, you know, our neighborhoods all the time. So, what we like to do is we'd like to invite our other departments that are here at Dallas College to come in and update the community on what we're offering. So, you know, if let's say, your nonprofit works with those who do reentry, well, we have programs here at Dallas College. So, we like to bring them out.

And then they can talk about all the new changes, or you know, what they have going and how Y'all can partner on future events. As well as this also gives you an opportunity to meet these people face to face, you know, that way you know, actually know who you're talking to. So not everything is, you know, behind these computer monitors. And so, we do that. And then we also try to bring in, you know, some kind of professional training there that fits for our nonprofits.

And if you want to come to our faith-based coalition and you also want to come to social service coalition that you're more than welcome to because we both recognize that you know there's specific needs to these communities and faith-based works in the communities as much as the social services do and sometimes they have social services you know embedded within their faith-based organization. So, we had about four last year and we actually have one coming up in September and at the end of this we'll post the flyer and tell you how you can attend that.

One thing we're proud of and we're looking to launch this next year is our family network. So, we recognize that since COVID, you know, the family dynamic has changed. Where before it was 2 to 3 generations possibly live in one house, we now have four, maybe even more. You know, an external family living under one household. So, what we're trying to figure out is how do we help those different age groups that are living all under one roof? Instead of just trying to, you know, target each individually, we try to work on how we approach the whole family as a whole.

So, we're currently compiling some survey responses of close to 200 community members and we're from that. We're going to help develop our family network and we plan to launch that later this year. So, our micro training sessions are something else that we offer. Our micro training sessions actually stemmed from our first coalition missions’ coalition meetings that were over two years ago. And at these coalition meetings we surveyed the people there.

And there was like, what do you all as nonprofits need? And so, we compiled 100 survey responses. And from that we're able to develop our micro training sessions. So, these micro training sessions are free 90-minute training sessions and sometimes they're in person at either our West Dallas or our Pleasant Grove campus or sometimes they're virtual as well. The topics that we addressed last year were all based on that survey. So, grant writing and researching, we actually had our grant.

Department from here at Dallas College gives 3 different presentations on grant writing and researching. And they talked about the logic model. They talked about how to write your grant narrative. They talked about how you know do the budget. So it was, you know, 4 1/2 hours of intense training on grant writing that was free to the community. And then for some of the other ones, you know, we had industry experts speak on those subjects.

So, they would come in and they do the 90-minute session that talk about you know using Volley to retain your volunteers and how to promote and recruit more volunteers. And so all these again come from the needs that were assessed in that survey. Moving forward, I personally would love if we could, you know, maybe get some accreditation to make this a certification program because these are the needs we've had from like a year and a half ago, but.

As the world's ever changing, you know, so are what the nonprofits face. So, I would like maybe one day if we can continue this so that way people can continue to upskill, you know, what they have and continue to learn more and how they can be more effective for their community members. Yeah, these micro trainings are awesome. Jonathan, have you had any feedback or success stories that tie into them?

So yes, in regard to grant writing and researching, we actually had a couple of our nonprofits get together and partner on writing several grants. We still don't know if they were awarded the grant, but just because they were all there, they found out they had similar interest, they started to work together, and you know created their own little coalition to tackle some of these projects. So, I was really rewarding to see. Wow. So, this ended up as a STEM creating a coalition of.

The partner or an opportunity group where they were able to work on a grant together, yeah, that's cool. Okay. And so finally what we, one of the things that we offer to the community is our event partnership. I think I whenever I sent more the bio early earlier, I said you know I've partnered with 25 different organizations and then over the course of the year, but then I started looking at my calendar and it's actually been 25 organizations since March.

So, we've been busy partnering with events, partnering for events with our nonprofits in the area. So, one of the great things about our department is that we're able to offer space here, Dallas College, the West Dallas Center and the Pleasant Grove Center free of charge. So, Dallas College has allowed us to donate the space as an in-kind donation. So, what that means is that we'll give you the space, we'll provide the Maintenance to come in and you know, cleanup it before and after and set up the event as well as we will, you know, have it come in and do that. All that we ask from our partners is that you include our logo on the flyer. You know, there's a little bit of a marketing piece that goes with that where all we do is we send it to marketing just for consistency and they get back to us. It's a really fast process. And then also we ask that at these different events that maybe we can do a welcoming or a greeting.

And just so welcome the people coming to our campus. And then also with that is you know if the partner for instance, you know that the population that they have that they have a very specific needs like we're talking about early like GED or ESL. We also are willing to bring out those departments so they can meet them there, you know after the event or before the event so they can find out more information about what we offer.

With these events, we ask that everything be free and no associated costs with it. No, you know, it's free, but they got to pay for their lunch. It's free. But you know, there's this other part like we can still do those at Dallas College. The only thing is that goes through a different team. And I mean, if we get to that point, we can, I can definitely connect you with them and get that, you know, settled. Another thing that we ask is that, you know, if you bring in anyone.

To present or something. We asked that, you know, we can vet them beforehand that way. You know, we just want to make sure we're being protective of our community and make sure that there's not any, you know, predatorial practices going on and you know, just make sure that our community isn't being taken advantage of. So those are the expectations we have. And for one of those things that we really use all this is with our community resource fairs. So, our community resource fairs, we usually have two a year. However, we've recently partnered with the North Texas Food Bank, and we have a couple more.

Coming up down the road, that I'll talk about a little bit more later. So, what kind of events have we had? Well over these last few months, these are the organizations we partnered with to host a variety of events. And you know, they can be a big organization, you know, like a nationally known nonprofit or it can just be a local nonprofit. We're not here to discriminate against either one of those. It is it. It is open and I'm willing to, you know, set up this discovery meetings and then going back to what I was talking about earlier in regard to discovery meetings.

At that point you know if you do know that you want an event, let let's set up the meeting at one of the campus spaces so I can show you the places. You know, I can take you to the different rooms where this room seats 199 people, this room seats 150, this one has 90. This one has an outdoor space that we could also utilize. And again, going back to that Discovery meeting if that's something you know you'd like, just whenever we're setting it up, please let me know so.

As I was talking about earlier, yes, Sir, I had a question for you because, OK, some of these, you know, events, they sound like they're phenomenal. There's also a lot of time invested a lot of effort that it's invested for these nonprofits to be able to take advantage of. So, you mentioned that the space is free, the events are free. Why does Dallas College offer everything for free? So that's a good question.

I actually had the same question whenever that first explained to me, but then I've actually been able to experience where, you know, all these events do bring the community to the campuses, OK? And the campuses are paid for by the county. So, it's, you know, it's their community to have. But then also on top of that is some of these people, this is their first-time stepping foot on a college campus. And then through some of these events, you know, where they have workshops, where they have, you know, different training sessions they're able to like to take.

In a way, take a class here. It's not through us, but they're going to get that idea going in their head. We're like, I could go to college. You know, this is something that I can do. They start to, you know, get those gears thinking where I'm this isn't as intimidating as, you know, I thought it'd be so. And then ultimately, you know, we believe that an educated and empowered community, it makes Dallas a better place for all of us to live. Yeah, you're here.

I agree. So, as I mentioned earlier, we were talking about resource fairs. At the end of July. We had a resource fair with the North Texas Food Bank, Feeding Texas and Texas Human Health Services. This was an amazing event. We had two spaces filled up where in one room we were able to have people come in and get their Medicaid and SNAP applications process in person.

Which was huge because a lot of times, you know, over the phone or, you know, they don't actually get to talk to someone. And at this event they were able to, you know, get determinations right then and there. So, we were able to get those applications processed. We're able to pass out 170 boxes of food that was, you know, big heavy boxes that were supposed to last, I believe for two to three weeks. And then we're also able to pass out eighty boxes, I mean 80 backpacks.

It was a big on taking because we had so many different partners with so many different spaces. But the great thing was is that there there's a need in the community and we were able to help meet that need. I got here that morning at 7:30 and we already had a line about 15 deep and the event didn't start till 9.

And even though that that line never, you know, dwindled down a little bit, the people kept coming in. And so, from this event, you know North Texas Food Bank and Texas Health and Human Services want to keep, you know, maybe doing these resource fairs so that we can you know continue to help these are our community meet to get these services that they need alongside with the applications. We also had a room of vendors where you know Brother Bills, that's a W it's a West Dallas staple where they provide services to.

You know medical and dental services to undocumented and you know citizens. So, people that were coming for those Medicaid and SNAP applications, they were also able to meet these other services that we offer in the community. We had assurance there they were passed; they were helping people sign up for free cell phones. So again, going back to when I was talking about community resource is that us at our fairs, we like to bring them in that also have that same vision where they're here.

To help the community and pass out, you know, give out these free resources and let people know what is out there. Because a lot of times, you know, I know coming from my personal family, we didn't like to ask for help or go out for help because it was kind of difficult for us to navigate or to find. So, what these community resource fairs would like to have everyone there. So, you can easily just walk around table to table and connect to those different organizations and you know, find out that there's people meeting a need that you have that you never even knew were there.

Yeah, awesome. That's some great stuff. And just as a quick reminder to everybody, I know that Jonathan and his team would love to connect with anybody that's interested, which is why I mentioned that at the at the end of our presentation or after our presentation, I'm going to make sure to send out an e-mail communication to all of the attendees with both the actual presentation and contact information for all the for the presenters. So, it's just a reminder.

So, another going back to what you were talking about earlier more is why we do this. So, whenever I was talking about people coming on our campus a couple months ago, we helped hosted Rosa's Rojo for a health workshop in graduation. What they do is they work to provide education to help prevent cancer and it helps to prevent like diabetes and heart issues. And so, they had two-day workshop here after the program participants already completed 20 hours prior.

And then on that Saturday we had their graduation here. And at that graduation I did talk to some of the program participants and like I'm not making it up, they actually told me that, you know, being here on campus helped them get that started in their head that I can go to college. You know, they sat here in our classrooms, they walked on stage here on our campus. And so, I already got going in their head that this is possible. This is something I can do. And so that was a great partnership, great event and.

They actually had me present in Spanish, so that was the 1st and I really enjoyed it. This is a real that was a really nice, neat picture back there. Do you happen to know how many graduates there were? I want to say there was over 40.

Wow. OK, awesome. And again, this was all free of charge, right? To Oh yes Sir, it was all free of charge. The organization has funding for the program participants. So, I mean it is getting paid for, but for the participants, they don't come out of pocket. That's awesome. OK, Sir. And they the two-day session, it was packed, and they were learning a lot about cooking, and you know, just different things that it's hard to go through in the virtual world. They're able to do it here on the campus and real practical things.

So, another organization that I've had the pleasure of working with in these community events is AVANSA in North Texas. So AVANSA, North Texas, for those of you who aren't familiar with them, they work to help prepare families prior to their students going to kindergarten. So, they have different they have a curriculum set up to where, you know, the mothers can be like the first teachers for the students. And when they first came to me there, they were talking about an activity where it was, did they have the Nino?

And at first, I was just like, OK, cool, you know, it's a traditional holiday. Let's celebrate our West Dallas campus. And this is the first time I found out that, hey, we can use outside space. And so, the other Nino, they were able to come to our campus. We had about 350 people total for that event.

And they had different face painting booths for the students. They had these little rocking chairs they had. I don't know if you can see it. Oh no, I didn't send that picture where they had a big parachute where the kids were able to come outside and play. We had different people from our departments. They're representing our GED&ESL, so they were able to get more information from that. We brought in more community partners, and it was just a great day outside here on the West Dallas campus. And it was on a Monday, Monday morning and we had 350 people here. Our parking lot was packed.

And because of the success of that event, it led to the US also posting their graduation for their program participants. So, they had the little 3-year-olds in caps and gowns and then they also had the mothers who went to the program in caps and gowns. They were able to, you know, walk down the aisle and receive a certificate from their program saying they completed a program. And again, this is one of those things where the event where people start to get those gears grinding in their head that you know, this is something I can do, you know, I've completed this. What's next?

And that's really what I love is like you know that what's next part is like who can we connect them with, what are your goals? Where do we want to go next? And so, from those two events, we're actually looking at, you know, partnering on another project. And so, I really love how these, just from getting to know these different nonprofits, we're able to continue and grow and see where the needs are and see how Dallas College can come back and you know how we can partner, how we can help.

One of the other events that I'm really proud of is that we partnered with AT&T Performing Arts Center Arch Bridge, which is powered by Toyota to host a steam camp here at West Dallas Center. We had over 65 students over the course of two camps. We partnered with the Boys and Girls Club of West Dallas and then we also partnered with Voices of Hope and for the whole week they were able to come in, they had the students free of charge.

Were able to come in. They had classes based on robotics. They had classes on as you can see there, they we actually had birds of prey that were in our building. And for one of the other steam camps we had, you know an educational petting zoo come out where we had pythons, we had a baby kangaroo. And it was really neat to see the students, you know, experience these things for the first time that they normally wouldn't experience. So, they had yoga, they had salsa.

They had some computer classes, and it was all free of charge to the participants and it was very enjoyable. And I also found out that, hey, I can bring animals to campus. So that's what I enjoyed. So, I say all that to say that if you have an idea, let's set up a discovery meeting, let's talk about it and see what it is. Because, you know, so far, I haven't been told no.

About what we can and can't do at our campuses. But I do have to run everything by facilities before you know we get their approval. So just know that. And then there's some great ideas. Then lastly, this past week we worked to host Congressman Mark VC. We worked with him on some other projects and this like a week and a half ago he reached out to see if we can have host the FCC Chairwoman who was coming down from DC to do a training session on the Affordable Connectivity Program.

So, with that we were able to host them and also, we were able to provide our nonprofits with this training to learn how they can get the reduced cost for their program participants. So, you know it was pulling in multiple partners to help serve our nonprofits who then go and serve the program participants. So, like I said, I'm open to any ideas and I would love to have discovery meetings and.

I mentioned it earlier that we do have some upcoming events. So, if you want to see what one of our community resource fairs looks like, we have one coming up on August 26th, which is not this Saturday, but next Saturday here at the West Dallas campus. I'll send Moy the flyer and maybe he can send it out if you'd like some more information. And then also earlier I talked about our nonprofit coalition meetings and first one of this year is actually taking place Wednesday, September 27th.

At our Pleasant Grove campus, So I believe they're going to drop the link in the chat. So, if you'd like to attend that, feel free to register. There will be a complimentary breakfast for two. Program participants are not program participants for two per organization, so be sure to register so we know how many to order food for. And that is it from my side of presentation. Here's our contact information. And Moy, do you have any other questions?

Yeah. So, there's obviously you gave out some really great information, but I feel like there's probably a couple questions that haven't necessarily been answered yet. For example, when do the micro sections start? I mean, do we have a calendar that's available to the community and how does the community or people in the community find out about the micro, the, the upcoming micro sessions?

So good question. We're still in the process of planning out the micro training sessions for this semester and next. And for those, if they want to just send me or a community engagement e-mail an e-mail saying that they're interested in this, I can get them added to our campaign. And then that way every time we have an event, they can be sure that they know about it.

We have a lot of people in the comments and chat that want to connect with you, just everybody that has commented, I'll make sure that all of this, all, all of your contact information gets shared with Jonathan so that we can connect with everybody. But. So, another question would be, you talked about discovery meetings and discovery sessions before. How, what does the discovery session look like? How does somebody connect with you and then move over to the discovery session?

Oh, just it's really easy. They can just e-mail me directly. I'll look at my calendar and send some availability. It's usually about a week and a half, you know lead time and then we can see what date works for us. Usually, they're in about 45 minutes blocks that way. You know it's not too short where we can't really address everything but it's not too long to where you know we talked about things that are not pertinent to the discovery meeting because I have tendency of doing that but.

Yeah, we can just set up on a one-on-one basis and if you want, depending on which campus you want to meet at, I'm flexible to meet there. If you want me to meet at your facility, I'm open to do that as well. Or if there's somewhere in the middle, it's pretty open. So just reach out to me and I'll check my calendar. Perfect. And one of the questions in chat was, is it possible to send out a contact list of all nonprofits to be able to collaborate?

I would have to get back to you on that one. I will say, if you're looking for nonprofits to collaborate with, our nonprofit coalitions would probably be the best chance at getting to connect with more nonprofits. Perfect. So, going through your presentation, Jonathan, do you feel like there's more that you want to add to be able to share with the community today?

More than I want to share with the community today, like I was talking about earlier in regard to event partnership, I'd love to see what else we can do. If there's a need, you know, reach out to me this this next weekend we have coming up is Headshots for the Homies. It's an organization that received funding from Bad Bunny and Hot Cheetos to provide professional development to when I say this.

Low income. Well, not anyone. Just it's really open to anyone who want to advance their careers, young adults, adults, whoever. And so, we had a session last weekend where they were able to come out and they talked about resume writing and then the session on the 9th of September were actually going to do actual headshots. And so, you know, it's just all these different ideas of, you know, meeting the needs of the community. How can we be creative about this? How can we partner with other organizations and bring in?

More people so that we can help you know the community in all different kinds of areas. That's awesome. One of the there was another question how they can how partner with Dallas College and on finding more volunteers for their organization.

So that one I would have to connect you with another team to see what that would do us personally we don't have any hands in that. So, I'd have to do a little bit of research to see how Dallas College could help meet that need. So basically, to answer and to add to that question or to that answer, we would end up taking your question, your concern and then we would end up routing it to the correct team to connect you properly and give you the best answer.

I know that in addition to that there are micro sessions that your team conducts, right? Yes Sir. To help coach on how to get the most volunteers and maintain them. I don't know if you wanted to give a little bit more insight on that.

Yeah, I know for that one we had Volley now who is a, you know, an industry expert in volunteerism and they talked about how you can utilize their platform. They showed different access points and different way you can target different areas to recruit volunteers and then also how to maintain that volunteer group. So that is one of the sessions we did offer last year. Okay, I'm just going through the chat.

It looks like if that goes through all the questions, this would be a really great time to again remind everybody that if you posted your information on the chat, we'll be happy to connect if that's what you're looking to do. I'll make sure that Jonathan gets that information and then also.

After this meeting I'll make sure that all the attendees end up getting a recording of this session and the presentation itself and all of the contact information as you might need. I think we have someone with our hand up boy. Yeah, so due to our settings you would end up having to post your question in the chat. OH, OK yeah, I apologize about that.

I see everybody's posting. That's perfect. OK. If anybody has any other like I said any other questions, please feel free to post them in the chat now anything that we haven't gotten to we'll make sure to answer via e-mail. But it looks like we're pretty much wrapped up for today's meeting, today's session.

All right, perfect. Thank you all so much for attending today's session. There's a question my Gwendolyn was able to post her question there. She said, have you had any experience working with AmeriCorps? No, I have not. So, feel free to send me an e-mail. Let's set up Discovery meeting so I can learn more.

Excellent. Well, thank you all so much. And once again, happy National Nonprofit Day. Yes, thank you all so much for the work. Y'all do. It's all much needed in the community.
