Now that we have a date and place set for Boot Camp (June 2 at UCSF Mission Bay — but you knew that, right?) we are eager to build the day’s program.

Boot Camp is an intense, fun and deeply engaging day of learning. This year, we’ll be focusing Boot Camp on Bay Area community strengthening efforts.

We need your help to uncover compelling challenges, issues and stories of success and innovation that you want explored at Boot Camp.
