Entrepreneurship is a dynamic union of innovation and opportunity, passion and vision, risk and reward.
Lavin Entrepreneurial Action Program prepares a select group of entering University of Washington undergraduate students, of all majors, for entrepreneurial careers. The program works with students who have a passion for entrepreneurship and exposes them to the risks and rewards of entrepreneurship – all in a safe environment. Students will graduate with a comprehensive understanding of entrepreneurship in its various forms, including real experience in starting and running their own company, and a summer internship in an early-stage firm. The Lavin Program integrates students into the local entrepreneurial community by providing networking opportunities and experienced mentors.
By combining entrepreneurship courses with opportunities for practical experience, Lavin students will have the experience, skills, knowledge and network that will be the foundation for their future business ventures – whether at their own start-up or within a larger, established firm.

From Regina Wandler, Americorps Volunteer Coordinator:
Skagit Land Trust is looking for some volunteers who know their native plants! We are collecting information on vegetation at several of our beautiful, protected sites in Skagit County, from the agricultural flats up into the forested North Cascades. If you’d like to get outside in beautiful areas, practice your plant ID skills, and meet others interested in native plants and conservation, contact Regina at email@example.com.
We’d love to have you even if you only have one day free – although you’ll enjoy the area so much, you’ll probably want to head out again! Dates of monitoring trips will be between June 9th and June 25th. Please respond with your availability, areas of interest and a short description of your skills!
*It may be possible to carpool to Mount Vernon, and carpooling from Mount Vernon to the properties will be available.*
We have other volunteer opportunities on our website at http://www.skagitlandtrust.org/events.aspx#gi

Do you love working with elementary students? Are you interested in immersing yourself in the beauty and strength of the Native Makah culture? Do you want a deep, engaging, non-traditional learning experience in the Pacific Northwest?
If you answered yes to the above questions, consider applying for the “Telling the Stories of Neah Bay” project, via a partnership between the UW’s Pipeline Project and Neah Bay Elementary School on the Olympic Peninsula. During the 2011-2012 school year, a small group of UW students will take part in a year-long project with Neah Bay Elementary students.
