Social Impact Summer Apprenticeship
As part of the launch of the Scott Center for Social Entrepreneurship at Hillbrook School, we are offering a unique and selective summer apprenticeship in collaboration with Middlebury College’s MiddCORE program for July 2018. Summer Apprenticeship students will spend the week working in a small group with high school peers, as well as college students and professionals in various industries, to complete a design challenge and present it. Students will focus on building key entrepreneurial skills: systems thinking, financial literacy, design thinking, ethical leadership, and storytelling. We will do this work through the learning lenses of empathy, curiosity and collaboration. Throughout the week, students will “apprentice-a-problem” as they design and prototype a mobile classroom for the Scott Center for Social Entrepreneurship. The Apprenticeship will be completed with MiddCORE students and mentor coaches from companies such as PayPal, Patagonia, Big Sur Land Trust, Wells Fargo, Just Business and the World Bank. By the end of the week students will have collaboratively designed a mobile classroom based on the pillars of social impact learning of the Scott Center for Social Entrepreneurship. This first-of-its-kind week-long program is perfect for students interested in exploring the questions: What matters to me? What skills can I build to do something about it? Who can I learn from to better understand the systems that will create change?
