programs


Our programs provide our members, supporters, and volunteers opportunities to meet people, learn new skills and share information and ideas.

Our current programs include:

  • The Social Innovation Challenge –> A pitch event for individuals and organizations who have identified a community need and developed a socially innovative idea to address it. The Community Innovation Hub and other organizations that support the Social Innovation Challenge provide funding, in-kind support, and coaching for the winners. Interested individuals can also be attendee for these virtual or in-person events!
  • The Community Innovation Challenge –> An  opportunity for  individuals and organizations to give back to community by defining a community problem and then brainstorming solutions. Similar to the Social Innovation Challenge, the team in charge of implementing the solution that people decide on will receive funding, coaching, and in-kind support. We will post the problem and solution so that other communities can replicate.

Check out Social Innovation Challenge for more information on these two programs.  

Also, be sure to check out Small Business Solver. Created by Carla Leon, this online learning platform will help you learn the basics of starting and growing a business! 

If you have a program that you would like to add or create, please contact Peter Miller at peter@communityinnovationhub.org
