WKU students will learn how powerful $100 can be during the Steps to a $100 Solution workshop on Feb. 24.
The $100 Solution™ came to WKU bringing with it an opportunity for students to change the Bowling Green community and beyond. Based on the idea that small changes may create a big impact, the $100 Solution™ challenges students to ask the community to identify a problem, then create a solution using only $100.
The WKU ALIVE Center for Community Partnerships will host the Steps to a $100 Solution™ workshop on Feb. 24 to teach students how to use the $100 Solution™ to make a difference. All students are welcome to attend anytime between 1 p.m. and 4 p.m. Feb. 24 at Downing University Center, room 340.
Students will receive the opportunity to complete eight stations on topics such as partnerships, assessing community needs, and receiving funding. Stations will teach the basic principles of service learning and prepare individuals to complete their own $100 Solution™ project.
Kayla Burke, a sophomore who completed a $100 Solution™ project in fall of 2010, said that working with the $100™ Solution has helped her become a more responsible citizen, allowed her to do more than she thought possible, and caused her to personally grow and mature in many ways. “I can honestly say I am a better person because of the impact it has made in my life,” she said. “Anyone with the time and the drive should get involved in The $100 Solution™.”
