Becoming Alight is a journey we’ve been on for several years…a journey that will continue for the next year and beyond…and a journey we hope you’ll join us on.
Over the next year, we’re exploring our Alight values one-by-one – talking about what they mean and convening to put them into action in our work. Every two months we’ll be focusing on a new value (December is Spark Joy!), and there will be opportunities for us to get together, connect and get that value out into the world. For those near our office in Minneapolis, those opportunities include:
Meet Alight Thursdays
This is an introduction session to Alight, our partners, the work we do, and our vision for making change in the world. It’s an opportunity for you to tour our space, ask all of your questions and make connections with our team. The Next Meet Alight Thursday –> December 5, 5:30pm – 6:30pm @ Alight
This is a moment to join us, get to know like-minded people and learn more about an Alight value. We’ll share a meal together and connect in our shared purpose of helping the displaced rebuild lives of meaning, dignity, and joy. The Next Connect Friday –> December 6, Noon-1pm @ Alight
Saturdays in Action
On Saturdays in Action, join us to do the doable and put our values into action.
The Next Saturday in Action is December 7. We’ll bring you closer to our work around the world and how we are sparking joy for our customers in 17 different countries – 3.5 million customers a year, to be exact!
Come learn about the sanctuary spaces we are building in places such as South Sudan, on the U.S./Mexico Border and in Rwanda. And be ready to spark joy! We’ve got some micro-actions planned so that everyone can use their hands and send a little happiness out to these global communities.
You’ll also meet the changemakers who work in these spaces. And if you can’t make it Saturday, there’s still the opportunity to drop off/donate materials that we can share in these sanctuaries around the world.
Family Friendly: YES!
When: Saturday, December 7 – 10am – 12:30pm
Location: Alight Office: 615 1st Ave NE #500, Minneapolis, MN 55413
