Organizations How can people get involved with your mission? Post
The DO School is offering a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) for aspiring social entrepreneurs: The DO School Start-Up Lab.
Taking your great ideas and making them a reality is never easy. The Start-Up Lab helps you to structure your idea and get started. It will introduce you to the crucial steps necessary to get going and help you to shape your idea in order to make it possible. The Start-Up Lab specializes in social entrepreneurship education and will therefore also assist you in adding social relevance to your venture.
Inspiring leaders, start-up investors and seasoned social entrepreneurs such as Muhammad Yunus, Scilla Elworthy, Jean-Remy von Matt and many more will offer their insights and recommendations to successfully start up your own venture. They will also teach you about the key competences, such as financing and leadership skills, that you need in order to get going.
In the online course forum you will be able to get in touch with other kick-starting entrepreneurs to exchange ideas and network.
The course lasts nine weeks and consists of nine chapters. It's completely free of charge.
Additionally we have developed a set of worksheets for each chapter that will help you to learn and better apply the knowledge shared through the expert videos. Each of them costs Euro 1.99, or Euro 9.99 as a complete pack for the whole course.

Volunteers Needed-Help Feed The Elderly w/ City Meals On Wheels NYSoM Loves Our Elders!
NYSoM was formed with one purpose in mind, to bring individuals from all backgrounds living and/or working in the tri-state area together to make a difference in the New York City metro area, and fight the on-going epidemic of poverty one day at a time. We partner with many non-profit organizations around the New York City area that serve the community in a variety of ways such as providing services for the homeless, hungry and those specializing in child welfare and the enviornment. By cultivating strong relationships with the non-profit organizations we partner with, and our members through community service activities, we aim to create a community that lends a constant hand to those in need. We participate in traditional events created by the organizations we work with as well as integrate our own NYSoM volunteer events to improve the experience of our members, partner organizations, and those we aim to help.
