ACT-SO Needs
What we could accomplish with greater resources: Greater Harrisburg Area NAACP ACT
-SO is frequently unable to provide support to students proposing technical projects. As an example, it is difficult to secure lab facilities for students competing in the sciences, or video equipment for filmmakers. With greater resources we could address these deficiencies.
Greater Harrisburg Area NAACP  ACT-SO would benefit from direct financial funding as well as from in-kind services and volunteer efforts in the following areas:
                        In-kind Services and Gifts:
Printing of ACT-SO promotional materials, stationery, certificates
Equipment (DVD/VCR, monitor, cameras, computers)
Access to technical facilities for science and visual arts students
Orientation receptions for recruiting coaches, judges and other sponsors
                        Career Development for ACT-SO participants:
Summer internships
Student symposiums on: college selection, application procedures and securing financial assistance; writing resumes and interviewing; developing confidence, professionalism and other business skills
                        Volunteers to assist with:
Enrichment Workshops – Coaching and mentoring the students
Outreach – “Adopt-a-School” recruiting of students from Greater Harrisburg Area high schools
Judging – Recruiting and judging of student projects (by qualified professionals with appropriate experience and/or educational background)
Competition – Setup, registration, category facilitators, lunch coordination and other activities
Awards Ceremony – Event Coordination and planning and general production activities
Media – Collaboration throughout the program year to expand student outreach, community involvement and public awareness
