"From Serving to Service: Developing Social Impact Career Opportunities for Youth" (Main Stage Plenary)

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

From talent recruitment and succession planning to idea generation, idea execution, and the general well-being of planet, youth engagement in social impact a careers touches anyone dedicated to social enterprise or social innovation.

This main stage plenary is the first of a two-part SEWF 2013 effort to focus on this crucial issue.  The main stage session will take a ‘broad sweep’ at this issue and involve all SEWF attendees. Topics may include: social enterprise careers can’t offer competitive pay, students don’t know how to access opportunities at for-profit or non-profit social enterprises, and students aren’t prepared for jobs in this sector.

The next day a breakout session (Friday, October 4 • 10:15am - 11:45 am) will target some of the insights and recommendations emanating from the main stage session and try to develop concrete ‘next steps’.
