We are excited to offer Upper School students an incredible new opportunity: The Social Innovators Program, in partnership with the University of Pennsylvania's School of Social Policy and Practice and Schoolyard Ventures. Through the Social Innovators Program, students will have the opportunity to learn about entrepreneurship and experience it first-hand, while earning a Certificate in Social Entrepreneurship from the University of Pennsylvania's School of Social Policy and Practice. During the thirteen-week program, students will learn how to launch a venture of your own that creates value and a positive impact on society.
