Our online eAcademy for Conscious Change will guide you in learning and applying all the social entrepreneurship frameworks and hard skills necessary to establish a sustainable non-profit organization from start to finish.
In this course, we will explore your strengths, your fears, the greatest issues your community faces, the root causes of those issues, your target population and stakeholders, your passions and gifts, and how you can use those passions and gifts to help yourself and others. We will help you determine a mission, theory of change, vision and program model and then build an organization that is self-sufficient and has a measurable social impact at a root and systemic level of your chosen issue.
Finally, we will teach you conscious leadership skills and practices for self-reflection that will ensure you design and lead your organizations ethically, responsibly and with compassion and empathy. By the end of the course you will have all the tools necessary to develop a comprehensive plan for the design and launch of your idea.
