Deadline: March 31, 2017
Up to six grants will be awarded to communities from across the country to participate in a nine-month, lab-based process, designed and facilitated by Greater Good Studio. Social labs are an internationally recognized approach with a flexible structure that brings together diverse stakeholders to engage with complex challenges in new ways. Within a lab, participants focus on systems, seek to identify and address root causes rather than just symptoms, and embrace—with an emphasis on learning and iteration—going beyond “business as usual.” Through Raising Places, Greater Good Studio leverages the labs process to help communities explore the intersection of two important perspectives: what it takes to create better communities and what it takes to support better childhoods. Local leaders drawn from these perspectives will collaborate to develop actionable, practical solutions to pressing community challenges.
Up to 6 grants are awarded at $60,000.
