Social impact is the effect an organization’s actions have on the well being of the community. Social Impact Projects are intended to foster more cross-disciplinary collaboration, encourage students to work within the community, and leverage their ability to benefit communities. A Social Enterprise exists to solve a social issue by combining commercial and social goals, but with an emphasis on a social mission (From Colorado Institute for Social Impact). Monumental Impact’s goal is to enable and support high school students with an interest and passion for engineering, technology and entrepreneurship with experiences.
As Monumental Impact starts up, we will foster student’s entrepreneurial interests as an incubator. Some students may jump right in with ideas they would like to offer the community. While other students are just looking for work-based experiences to get their footing outside of the classroom. We welcome both types of student interns!
As the student community capabilities grow, many of these experiences will form patterns of the types of products, services and events that student leadership can manage throughout the year. We look forward to this evolution as a channel for both student experiences and as offerings that benefit their student community, business community, residential community and themselves via self-improvement. In time, the goal is that students are leading all of these products, services and events that provide them experiences…in addition to giving back into their own programs as funds and skills. We look forward to enabling and supporting them in their journey!
