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.”

Our services and programs individually and collectively bring together nonprofit, philanthropy, government, and business to advance solutions to today’s toughest social issues by helping them understand and invest in what works.

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.
