Social Entreprenuership is recruiting for its local program!


The Social Entrepreneurship Program at the College of Wooster believes that you can solve social problems like poverty, environmental degradation, minority access to education and others by being the agents of change.

Social Entrepreneurship is the process of creative thinking, innovation, risk-taking, and analysis that creates opportunities with sustainable social and economic value.

Our program offers you the unique opportunity to learn about social entrepreneurship by doing. You will develop and use tools for social change by consulting for nonprofits.

Information Meetings on April 5 12-1pm, and 6th 7-8pm in Lowry 118.

The program is divided into three sets of experiences:
