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.
