New School for Social Entrepreneurs (Sydney)

Australia’s new School for Social Entrepreneurs is seeking its first round of Sydney-based participants who are eager to turn their ideas for social change into reality. The School for Social Entrepreneurs (SSE) Australia is dedicated to identifying, developing and supporting social entrepreneurs to establish effective, sustainable community projects and initiatives that meet social and community needs.

The only prerequisite for SSE Australia’s Sydney program is that applicants demonstrate entrepreneurial drive and have a passion for social change. No formal qualifications are required and participants may range in age from 20-75 and be serving diverse communities and issues.  SSE Australia will select 15-20 individuals to commence the 9-month tailored Sydney program in March 2009, which involves a combination of weekly group study sessions, one-to-one tutorials, mentoring sessions, project visits and a 3-day residential.

Applications close on February 6. All applicants are encouraged to contact the SSE Program Officer Courtney Collins at before submitting their application to discuss the program in more detail. Interviews will take place in early February 2009. For more information visit the website
