Announcing the 2011 Sansori Jam Session
application deadline: March, 15, 2011
Want to launch or innovate a sustainable social enterprise?
Beginning in June 2011, Sansori will be offering a post-baccalaureate program for young entrepreneurs passionate about creating positive social change. Drawing from the best of both the for-profit and not-for-profit sectors, the 2011 Sansori Jam Session offers anyone ages 21-29 the creative, financial, and organizational tools needed to launch and run a sustainable social venture.
How does it work?
During the course of our year-long post-baccalaureate program, you learn by doing. You don't just design your dream venture; you realize it. Our students partner with peers, business and creative professionals, and a network of investors over the course of a year-long program culminating in the launch of their social ventures. The collaboration begins in a three-week residential session at Amherst College in Massachusetts, and then moves online, so students are able to pursue their social ventures even as they continue to support themselves or study. Areas of focus range from environmental justice to international development to conflict resolution and beyond. Visit www.sansori.org to find out more.
How to apply?
Any college graduate (or current college senior) age 21-29 is encouraged to apply by March 15, 2011. All application information can be found here. The application fee will be waived to users of this forum who mention the referral code IPC09001.

Dear Abdulai Alhaji Sulley,
Thank you for your note and for expressing your concern. I wanted to let you know that we believe that social entrepreneurship is a field for people of all ages. This is our first year in operation, and to focus our efforts and outreach we are working with this specific age group. That said, we have plans to introduce a Second Career Program (for an older demographic) and an Intergenerational Program (for a wide mixed-age group). Please visit our site and add your email to be informed of new program development.
Thanks again for sharing your thoughts.
Dear Adam Horowitz,
Thank you for the clarification. I will visit your web site and add my email.
