Cooperative Impact

Creating an environment that encourages new connections between the makers. Programs to reconnect people with their humanity so they care about people more than profit. As we build a pipeline of inspired community members it organically induces a specific type of new ideas. Rather than productivity tools we think of ways to make the quality of life better for all residing in this great nation. Connecting these budding social entrepreneurs with mentors is an imoprtant step in the process of blending a sustainable revenue model with their community-based idea. Impact investors are waiting in the wings.

In the early stage of developing a social enterprise ecosystem it is easiest to describe it as:

“Local community members who work cooperatively to create business models that tackle social problems like inequality and climate change. Members are assets to one another as they share resources, insight, and advice from respective industries.”

The White House’s Office of Social Innovation and Civic Participation

SICP works with every member of the community – including nonprofits, foundations, social enterprises, businesses as well as faith-based and other community organizations – to meet the challenges facing our communities. These organizations offer a safety net for those most in need. They serve as an economic engine for job creation in communities across America. They also serve as an incubator of innovation and foster solutions to some of our toughest challenges.

Southern New England Education Training Hall :: SNEETH

SNEETH provides an intersection of tutoring and private education. The model involves squads of students over a given term; a decentralized classroom approach of inquiry, dialogue, and critical assessment. We develop writing and public-speaking skills through dynamic, experiential assignments and challenges, including family inclusion and societal critique. In short, something fundamentally new [and fun!] in education.
I created these techniques while teaching Composition and Literature at CCRI and several other educational settings.

Center for Social Impact

The Centre for Social Impact is a collaboration of four universities: the University of New South Wales, Swinburne University of Technology, The University of Western Australia and The University of Melbourne. At CSI, we take a systems approach to improving social impact through government, business and social purpose sectors. Our aim is to create positive, meaningful and sustainable systems change for the benefit of our community and particularly for those at disadvantage as a result of complex, long-term systemic issues. Our research, teaching and advocacy are focused around our social impact framework, which captures our vision for more effective systems for social impact in Australia.
