Podium RVA Events

The events and campaigns Podium hosts provide much-needed funding to help us better serve RVA youth. We host several events throughout the year, including dinner nights, young professional networks, and youth open mics, and our two annual fundraisers: the Awesome Adult Spelling Bee each Spring and RVA Celebrity Dish each Fall. Our events provide varying atmospheres but serve one purpose, to help Podium enrich the lives of the youth we serve. New in 2021, Podium hosts virtual campaigns throughout Feb., April, June, Aug., and Dec. to connect our growing community through donation challenges, calls for writing submissions, Zoom events, and more!

Current Campaign

Proceeds from this year's virtual Bee will fund Podium youth summer writing, communication, and leadership programs. Now is especially a critical time to help Richmond children prepare to head back to school in-person this fall.
