What do you get when you throw together seven organizations from across Ontario and ask them to collaborate? A group of people who are trying to make the world a better place – the Socent7.
Cx is a proud member of the the Socent7, a collective made up of seven youth-serving initiatives, which represent collaborative projects involving 30 or more additional partners. Kind of like a "collaborative of collaboratives."
Each member of the collective is part of the Ontario Trillium Foundation’s (OTF) 2013–2016 Future Fund granting cohort, and together we're collaborating to develop infrastructure to support young social entrepreneurs.
Our work aims to change the culture of youth social entrepreneurship to create:
- A mature sector with demonstrated success models.
- A culture whose success measures also include the development of skills, knowledge, experience and attitudes.
- A sector welcoming, accessible to and inclusive of youth from a broad range of backgrounds, cultures, geographies, experience and financial resources.
