The response to the Odyssey Angels program has grown
even more as it enters its 4th year. Many creative ideas
have been explored, friendships forged, and many
neighborhoods will be improved. There were a lot of great ideas
presented during this year’s Odyssey Angel enrollment.
There are groups helping kids with disabilities, struggling schools, animal shelters, health programs, and more. We consider everyone a hero that chose to enroll and help their community. Unfortunately, only one group can be selected to attend World Finals. Here are the next steps to completing the Odyssey Angel program for this year.
If you have enrolled in the program by completing the online enrollment form, you will be sent a follow-up email that contains the “Progress Report” form for your group.
A representative can fill it out and return it any time before the April 1st deadline. You must return it by this time in order to be eligible to attend World Finals and present your project at the Creativity Festival.
The form simply asks what you have done so far for your project and requires a reference from the community member(s) you are helping. Keep in mind that your project can be ongoing. You don’t have to stop because of the deadline.
Also, remember that you do not have to fill out the form as soon as you receive it. You should submit it when you feel it is the best time to have your work evaluated, as long as it is before the deadline.
After April 1st the Odyssey Angels panel will have the difficult task of selecting just one group to attend World Finals. This group will by notified by Odyssey Angels Director Cheryl Micklus and the results will be posted to the Odyssey Angels web site.
There are so many generous and creative entries that although only one group can present at World Finals, many communities around the world benefit — they are the true winners!
Again, we thank the groups for their hard work and look forward to reading about all the good that has been done in those progress reports!
