This term we are recruiting teams of students to work on project briefs for local social enterprises. We'll provide training to introduce you to this growing movement and help you develop the skills you'll need to become a changemaker yourself. It's the perfect taster for those curious about the social enterprise sector. Sign up online before Sunday 20th January.
Oxford Hub is delighted to work with the University of Oxford's Research Services to offer Oxford University staff and students the Social Enterprise Challenges.
How do the Social Enterprise Challenges work?
Step 1) We work with local entrepreneurs, businesses, and community partners to identify potential social enterprise projects.
Step 2) Once projects are approved, we recruit small teams of 3 students with the energy and skills to drive each of these projects forward.
Timeline for the Challenges
All teams will meet for an induction at Oxford Hub in late January, where they will be given further details about their project and training on how to launch their social enterprise initiative.
Teams will then be supported through regular training sessions and check ins at Oxford Hub, alongside support from their community partner, so that they can take the project forward. They will have a budget of £500 to test ideas and pilot activities.
At the end of the term, teams will come back together at Oxford Hub and showcase what they have achieved and learned.
