In partnership with The Scottish Government, the mission is to get Social Enterprise Schools into every school in Scotland.
In 2007, we launched Social Enterprise Schools in Scotland, and since then we have worked with 55,000 young people in 7 countries across the world.
More than ever, we need social entrepreneurship to tackle the challenges we face as a society.
How Social Enterprise Schools works:
Social Enterprise Schools is a pupil-led programme which is delivered by social entrepreneurs who are experts at facilitating groups of young people. It is based around asking groups two key questions:
Question 1: What do you care about?
We ask young people to reflect on their local communities and identify an issue that they genuinely care about and want to solve. This could be about the environment, the economy, helping their local area, or anything else… the choice is theirs!
Question 2: How will you make change happen?
We inspire young people to create a real-life social enterprise in school, supporting them as they launch their idea and social change. Their social enterprise idea will depend on their identified issue.
