The Social Transformation Tournament is a game-like collaboration between social and civil organizations and/or individuals. Projects that promote healthy community and strengthen the fabric of society – whether locally or globally – can be entered in the Tournament provided they were launched within the past three years. The Tournament provides a goal for the play; a set of rules; and a feedback (scoring) system.  The play is completely voluntary.  

The Social Transformation Tournament Intern will be responsible for researching and contacting social and civil organizations, and/or individuals involved in relevant projects, to invite them to participate in the Tournament. The Intern will also draft a Social Transformation Tournament Guidebook, which will be used to promote the Tournament to other cities.

Work on collecting information and contacting other organizations will be complete by January 30, 2018.

Draft manual will be complete by April 15, 2018.
