The Grove, Dallas has recently formed its “Impact Collective North Texas,” a hands-on, working cohort focused on addressing systemic social issues in North Texas. We aim to unite people who want to do good with the people who need help doing it.
Solutions are out there. Collaboration is the key to unlocking them. Our up-coming working cohorts are designed to:
- Help improve existing organizations and increase their impact
- Support new ideas in their pathway to launching
- Connect members of the community to projects with lasting impact
Impact Collective meetings are “by invitation” events designed to intentionally connect change-agents from across North Texas. We see the Impact Collective as a crucial piece of the local social impact ecosystem puzzle. We believe that creating a unified community of doers can be our greatest contribution to that ecosystem.
The Impact Collective cohorts will continue to develop around the nine Social Call-to-Action Pillars which The Grove stands upon. Also: social enterprises that form as a result of the cohorts will have the opportunity to go through Unreasonable Labs (a social enterprise acceleration program being held at The Grove). All of this can further the reach and increase the long-term health of these social impact organizations.
