Public Profile

About This Organization

Abbreviation(s):
ACSS
Purpose:
Aggies Creating Sustainable Solutions is a community of individuals who all share the common passion to create solutions to social issues. ACSS exists to equip students with the tolls and information essential to discovering and implementing effective solutions to social issues. Our desire is to educate students on how to approach a social issue and determine its root causes in order to create an effective solution to that issue. ACSS hears from social entrepreneurs and non-profit founders as they speak about their experiences. We host different fundraising events to provide our members with hands-on fundraising experience, which will be a crucial skill in almost any social enterprise or non-profit. ACSS provides several volunteer opportunities and tours of local non-profits or social enterprises. We also have several brainstorming discussions, where we share with one another what our individual passions are, where those passions come from, common mistakes done by organizations, the mindset behind effective organizations, and tools that the students can be utilizing while they are in college to take the first steps towards their future careers in the social sector. As a community, our goal is to become influential humanitarian leaders of today and tomorrow.
