24 Educational Social Enterprises

From Mission-Focused Mentorship to Celeb Chef Apprenticeships

— May 17, 2012 — Social Good
These educational social enterprises speak to one of the core tenets of the "Social Business Principles" that we outline on our About Us page. Principle number one is: "Purpose is to solve a social issue; eradicate it. Social issues are those that relate to poverty, health, education and human rights."

But you don't need me (or anyone) to tell you the importance of education. Browse through this innovative list and you'll come across people around the globe. From celeb chef apprenticeship programs like Jamie Oliver's famed Fifteen restaurants to youth-oriented finance initiatives like Lily Lapenna's MyBnk, educational social enterprises tend to stray away from the traditional classroom and work toward creating alternative ways for students to learn and reach their full potential -- in whatever capacity or industry that may be.
