Social Intrapreneurs Finding Paths to Social Change in Rural Ontario

Social Intrapreneurs Finding Paths to Social Change in Rural Ontario

CCRC recruiting youth and professionals in non-profits and businesses in Huron/Perth

The Canadian Centre for Rural Creativity is hosting a new program designed for social change agents living and/or working in Huron and Perth Counties.  Pathways to Impact (P2I) is a program offered by the internationally-acclaimed, award-winning School for Social Entrepreneurs (SSE).

The program includes 6 in-class sessions, 4 webinars, 4 mentor sessions and 4 coaching sessions, beginning May 5 in Blyth. The participants will be inspired by working social entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs, and develop an”entrepreneurial" mindset to see opportunities where others see obstacles. A Social Intrapreneurial Fellowship certification will be awarded to those successfully completing the program, linking these emerging leaders to other disruptive thinkers globally.

“These life-skills are vital in today’s competitive workplace,” says Peter Smith, Project Director of Blyth 14/19.  “The participants will be impacted by some of the most inspiring leaders in Huron/Perth as they embrace the opportunity to take their professional contributions to the next level.”

P2I includes:

  • A self-directed, and creative learning environment; 
  • In-person sessions with experienced social innovators to learn about topics like social impact, human-centred design (a problem-solving technique that ends with new solutions that are tailor-made to suit unique needs), systems thinking, and innovative business models.
  • Personalized coaching to help tackle complex problems through a hallmark Action Learning approach; and,
  • A dynamic network of fellow social innovators in Canada and around the globe through the SSE alumni community and through involvement in the League of Intrapreneurs.
