Campaign Overview

8-week Pilot Program where High School students are educated about SOCIAL ENTERPRISE and provided with resources to develop one.


Why?

80% of students enter the labour force to work in jobs that they hate. Many young people are often faced with what they think is a ‘choice’ between:

•    making money/living sustainably,
•    doing what they love, or
•    contributing back to society/assisting others.

One Can Grow will present proven, successful case studies of young and older people who have created or currently work in an enterprise that is sustainable & making income – as well as providing them with a job they love and are passionate about – whilst giving back to society and/or to the world.

Our Program

One Can Grow is seeking partner schools to assist with an 8-week pilot program where students are educated about social enterprise and provided with resources to develop one.

We propose a structure of 2 hour sessions during or after school one day per week, where up to 30 students participate in workshops related to entrepreneurship and/or social impact.

These sessions consist of a 1 hour Seminar and a 1 hour interactive workshop. The Seminar is divided into two sections: “Eyes Open” and “Smart Business”.

1)    “Eyes Open”: Inspiring students to solve social problems, through awareness and empowerment.

2)    “Smart Business”: Educating students about fundamentals of entrepreneurship and business strategy, providing them with tools to make an impact.
