Through The Shift, teams of highly skilled volunteers come together to develop high potential ideas into solutions for some of our community’s most challenging issues.

For the past 12 weeks, three teams of hand-raisers, game changers and stop-talking-start-doing go getters have been hard at work designing and testing their ideas to:
• Better connect low-wage workers to transportation solutions that help them get to work
• Build stronger community connections across cultures
• Create opportunities for artists and communities to address safety issues in neighborhoods

In The Shift, we don’t just sit around and talk about our ideas. We get out and test them. United Way and Design Impact invite you to come hear the stories of what we’ve tried, what we’ve learned and where we think these ideas can go next.

Tickets are $10 and the full proceeds of your ticket will go to help implement the idea you like most. You’ll have a chance to hear pitches from all three teams, vote on your favorite and provide feedback and connections that can help strengthen and launch the programs in 2018.

Presentations will begin at 5:45 pm.
