University of New Hampshire students spending the summer interning at mission-driven businesses and nonprofit organizations as part of the Carsey Institute’s Center on Social Innovation and Finance summer programs will highlight their experiences at the Social Innovation Showcase Wednesday, July 31, 2013.
The event will be held at Holloway Commons, Piscataqua Room from 10 a.m. to noon. The event will include student presentations and an open discussion about increasing UNH’s focus on “triple bottom line” careers that take into consideration economic, social, and environmental impacts. It is free and open to the public but registration is requested. Last year’s event attracted more than 100 people from business, nonprofits, government, and higher education.
Now in its third year, the Carsey Social Innovation Internship matches UNH students with hand-picked partners that represent a range of sectors, from community development to sustainable investing, from local food to plastics recycling. In addition to their internship, students visit other host organizations and receive hands-on learning about how these organizations “harness the market” to solve social or environmental problems.
This year, 11 students are participating in the program. The UNH partners are Coastal Enterprise, Inc., Dare Mighty Things, New Hampshire Farm to Restaurant Connection, Pax World Management, PLAN: The Post-Landfill Action Network, Poly Recovery, Portsmouth Historical Society, ROC USA, Timberland, UNH Foundation, and Veris Wealth Partners.
Free, but preregistration requested
