Event description

Description

How might we explore, design and experiment with social impact projects and programs in schools? This is our driving question for a half-day workshop scheduled just prior to the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS) Annual Conference in March 2018. The plan is to bring together 35-40 invited change makers from about 7-10 independent schools, so that we can exchange ideas for enhancing social impact work in our learning communities. We want to share and build on current practice, as well as design for exciting possible futures. What's more, we hope to strengthen the network of schools operating programs that set conditions for students to do real-world impact work.

The Social Impact Design Workshop is a joint venture among the Mount Vernon Institute for Innovation at Mount Vernon Presbyterian School (Atlanta, GA), the Center for Teaching Excellence and the Scott Center for Social Entrepreneurship both at the Hillbrook School (Los Gatos, CA).

We also thank the Savannah College of Art and Design--Atlanta for their support and involvement. SCAD, one of the nation's most innovative art and design universities, prepares students for creative careers by partnering with industry leaders through the Collaborative Learning Center. SCAD--Atlanta has graciously offered to host this event so that all proceeds may benefit MVIFI, the Center for Teaching Excellence and the Scott Center for Social Entrepreneurship.
