The current model for social innovation is highly dependent on contributions of time, resources and skills. Although honorable, this model is not economically sustainable, with less than 5 percent of social change concepts reaching fruition.
Implementing Social Change: Beginner's Workshop guides attendees through the critical processes of actualizing solutions to social challenges with a sense of entrepreneurial spirit by exploring the following topics:
» Concept assessment
» Leveraging relationships
» Establishing mutually beneficial partnerships
» Marketing communications
» Identifying resource needs
» Creating a simple budget and financial plan
» Overview of funding models and sources
» Developing an implementation plan
» Impact measurement/outcomes
An interactive presentation is followed by small group collaboration where attendees get the opportunity to apply new skills to actual projects through a series of exercises aligned with the topics covered in the morning session.
