ACRE operates the Social Enterprise Academy in Australia through a social license agreement.
During 2018, ACRE is working with 20 schools across North East Victoria and over 1200 students to deliver the Social Enterprise in Schools program.
Understanding Social Enterprise
Our 'Understanding Social Enterprise' workshops across Victoria are starting a new dialogue around building economic and social capital.
Over two days, leaders from government, community, education and business sectors come together to explore how social enterprise could create social change.
The workshop is made up of facilitated discussion and visits to social enterprises in the community, developing an understanding of how social enterprise might work in local communities.
Social Enterprise in Schools
'Social Enterprise in Schools' is a collaborative, hands-on experience giving young people opportunities to run a business
Working with specially-trained local entrepreneurs, students set up and manage their own social enterprise - a business with a social purpose.
Teachers benefit from specialist workshops, support and resources to bring entrepreneurship to life in the classroom.
