Social enterprise in a box
This program launches a social enterprise within a school, providing a real-world experience of working in a venture for students. Students are empowered to design, launch and manage the social enterprise.
Young Change Agents facilitates workshops with students to develop the brand and logo of the shop and decide what they will stock. We also codesign the shop logistics and experience with students. This program also also allows students to experience budgeting and managing funds without using real money through our platform that tracks their income and spending.
Our social enterprise in a box program is delivered in partnership with Good 360, a not for profit organisation that repurposes surplus brand new goods and directing them to the Australians who need them most. They donate products to the in-school social enterprises to provide approximately 50% of the stock.
This program is only available to schools with an ICSEA under 1000.
