Define. Brainstorm. Action! ๐Ÿ‘ˆ Thatโ€™s your agenda for the HYP Social Change Workshop!


What is social change?

It impacts our way of life, our workplaces, our opinions...

Social change occurs without us really realizing it's happening. It includes the changes in human interactions and relationships that transform cultural and social institutions. These changes occur over time and have a long-term impact on communities like Hastings.


What is can you expect at this workshop?

Let's talk about it.

Have you ever wondered how social change happens? How do we pursue the kind of changes that help us address social problems such as poverty, illiteracy, gender inequality, domestic violence, and even seemingly personal matters such as addiction? Join Dr. Laura Logan for this workshop and identify strengths and needs in our community, learn how social change happens, then make an action plan to foster positive change right here in Hastings.


How do you register?

Pre-registration is required and limited to 25 people. HYP members and students pay $15 and everyone else pays $20 which will cover your registration and lunch catered by Fresh Ideas. All profit from this workshop will go to SASA Crisis Center in Hastings!
