February Steering Committee Meeting 

On February 6th, Project by Project hosted the first Steering Committee meeting of 2016. PbP members participated in various leadership building exercises and President Vickie Chan gave an overview of what to expect this year. Directors then met with their teams to go over team goals and get their members ramped up for the exciting events Project by Project has coming up! PbP is still accepting applications for new members, so if you are interested in joining and would like additional information, please contact the volunteer team at volunteer.la@projectbyproject.org!


Still Searching for the One 

Every year, Project by Project selects a non-profit organization to partner up with and tailors a year-long campaign to help its fundraising, community outreach and public awareness efforts. This year, Project by Project has chosen to support organizations addressing the needs of the Asian and Pacific Islander (API) Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer (LGBTQ) community. A partner has not yet been chosen and we are still accepting applications for a community based non-profit organization that is focused on issues within this theme. If you have a group that you would like to nominate, please contact outreach.la@projectbyproject.org!


Volunteer of the Month 

Calvin is a hardworking, caring, and spontaneous member of the Operations team in Project by Project. He was inspired to be more involved in PbP after seeing the support and sincerity the Project by Project community has provided him. His involvement in PbP over the last two years has helped him step out of his comfort zone and improve his leadership skills. Calvin's vast knowledge in Computer Programming has become an integral piece of our web development team. Thanks for all your hard work, Calvin!
