Social Innovation

What is Social Innovation?

Yep We Design Foundation has partnered with Shane Shepherd’s B4U Fall organization to teach youth ages 12-28 years of age Digital Marketing, and Graphic Design. B4U Fall was awarded $75,000 from United Way of Central Indiana for their Social Innovation Fund.

The Social Innovation Fund is an opportunity for community-based organizations to propose new ideas and scale successful programs that could lead to better possibilities for thousands of individuals and families who are living in or one step away from poverty. The Fund specifically targets initiatives that can accelerate positive outcomes for individuals needing safe and affordable housing; access to healthy food, transportation or education; pathways to better-paying jobs; and improved physical, mental and behavioral health.
