From Past Participants:

"Before attending the SENT Seminar, I had no idea what impact it would have on turning my dream into a living project. I was so impressed at how the whole structure, from arrival to departure, was a joy leaping inside of me that said, “they care about what you have envisioned.” The workshops were well thought out and planned. I really enjoyed the hands-on exercise of setting up my social media page before I left. I am such a taskmaster, and checking that one off the list felt good. ... The NBA staff were so incredible and professional in how they met with all the attendees. I felt that my dream was shared in a safe place, and it gave me time to reflect on what it could become." — Syvoskia Pope, 2017

"The journey into social entrepreneurship begins with saying 'yes' to things one is afraid to do. The NBA SENT Seminar has been an important part of me saying 'yes' and connecting myself to a community of people who are also interested in making a difference." Rebecca Klemme Eliceiri, 2019 SENT Participant
