The Sprout E-course is designed to give young leaders worldwide access to training in essential skills, including team building, project management, communications and leveraging technology as they imagine, plan and develop social innovation projects.
Since 2008, over 400 emerging social innovators from 71 countries have participated in the Sprout e-course. We offer this e-course to any young person with internet access and a brilliant world-changing idea.
The Sprout E-course is a 9-week e-course including 1 orientation week, 6 weeks of lessons and quizzes, and 2 weeks of independent work. The curriculum is structured into four modules as follows: design, plan, connect and assess. Each module requires participants to complete one lesson and at the end of each module, participants will complete a quiz and self-assessment to progress to the next module. Module lessons cover everything from articulating the issues your project aims to address to developing your project mandate, action plan, team structure and funding ecosystem.
