Columbia Business School: The Social Enterprise Program

The mission of the Social Enterprise Program is to advance the understanding of how management can contribute to society and the environment and to develop the next generation of social enterprise leaders. We have traditionally been student-oriented in our efforts, and our program remains first and foremost focused on developing the next generation of social enterprise leaders. In social enterprise, we have taken to heart the School’s vision of connecting research and faculty to real-world practice. The Social Enterprise Program supports a wide range of research activities, related coursework and conferences. The Columbia Business School Social Enterprise Conference is meant to help spark the conversation on driving sustainable change beyond the new millennium. Lastly, the Social Enterprise Program, in conjunction with the School’s Career Management Center and student clubs, provides resources and networks to students pursuing careers in nonprofit, government or nongovernmental organizations, for-profit and nonprofit social ventures, social venture capital firms, and socially responsible business

REDF

Since 1997, REDF, a California-based nonprofit, has led the pioneering effort to create jobs and employment opportunities for people facing the greatest barriers to work—like young people who’ve dropped out of school, people who’ve been in prison or homeless, and those who live with mental health disabilities. We believe the opportunity to work should be available to everyone, everywhere. We know the power jobs can have in transforming lives and communities.

REDF launched the Social Enterprises for Jobs (SE4Jobs) Working Group in 2010 to connect the dots countrywide between social enterprises and the ecosystem in which they operate. SE4Jobs is a national learning and action network of social enterprise leaders united by a common purpose: to scale job creation in America for individuals facing the greatest barriers to work.

The Compass Fellowship

We are in love with social entrepreneurship, and we want to inspire everyone who comes through our program to feel the same. Our community requires no special knowledge to join and no previous experience in running a business. We just expect that everyone who joins our community resonates with the the Compass values, loves life, and creates passionately. By connecting a community of students who are insanely passionate about their interests with equally ardent entrepreneurs, we are creating a global community that is intensely focused on changing the world.

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.
