Service Learning - Week 10
Giving Back (Again)
We kicked off our Spring Service Learning way back in March by learning about giving back to our communities thru social entrepreneurship. A social entrepreneur creates a business (or multiple businesses) to address a social issue or cause in their community.
Over the past 10 weeks, we’ve learned about the basics of creating a business: from product development to marketing to keeping track of our revenues, costs and profits.
Our final challenge to you this spring is to circle back to where we start: the idea of giving back.
Think about the cause that is most important to you. Now imagine that your business made a profit of $100 during the past 10 weeks that you can give back to a charity that works to address this issue. For example, if you choose fighting hunger as your cause, perhaps you would want to contribute a portion of your profits to the Greater Boston Food Bank.
So … what charity would you choose to give back to? How would you research this charity to make sure they are the best one to share your profits with?
