Building the

next generation

of social entrepreneurs

We set up Young Social Entrepreneurs (YSE) after attending a trip to Ghana as part of the Chief Rabbi’s Ben Azzai Programme. We returned from the trip inspired to educate young people about the challenges our international community is facing and the importance of having a sense of global social responsibility. Through our programmes, we equip young students with the practical knowledge, skills and confidence to reflect on their worldview and implement positive change.

Programmes

LEARN

Through a series of interactive and educational LEARN workshops, students are empowered to gain a deep understanding of a range of local and global social challenges.

LAUNCH

Through the flagship LAUNCH competition, students devise their own social enterprise in response to a local social challenge. The strongest ideas are invited to pitch their social enterprises to a panel of expert judges, and are considered for implementation in their own community. 

LEAD

Through the LEAD programme, students connect with leaders in the field of social entrepreneurship and explore the diverse pathways available for becoming social entrepreneurs across different environments, be it in a social enterprise, NGO, or within a corporate setting.
