BreakOUT! is excited to announce that Director, Wesley Ware, recently received the 2012-2013 Propeller Social Venture Accelerator Fellowship.  Below is more information about the program from the Propeller website:  

"The SENO Social Venture Accelerator was designed in partnership with globally recognized social entrepreneurship nonprofit Echoing Green.  The Accelerator helps early-stage ventures become operational, reach financial sustainability, and meet social impact targets through hands-on support from paid consultants in areas of need, pro bono professional services (legal, accounting, graphic design, marketing, etc.), a network of mentors and experts, timely connections, peer learning opportunities, and increased exposure for the venture."

The fellowship will provide BreakOUT! with much needed technical assistance and increase our capacity as a young organization.  BreakOUT! will be able to access pro bono assistance to help us increase our efficiency with all of our back office needs, such as accounting and setting up our 501c3 status.  The fellowship will also help BreakOUT! access potential new supporters and donors, facilitate our access to other networking opportunities, and increase our visibility in New Orleans.

We are very excited to be awarded this fellowship along with so many other inspiring organizations and are looking forward to using the opportunity to learn new skills and use additional resources to further build the power of LGBTQ youth in New Orleans.
