Social Impact Learning and Support Group

A monthly gathering where we share food, learning and support for social impact.

We know change isn’t always easy, fast or simple. That’s why we’re here for each other.

Come develop skills and connections for social impact. Leave with tools, inspiration and new friendships for more effective work and a more balanced life.

Since 2015, participants of our open community have supported each other’s pursuit of social impact. Together, we have celebrated exciting career opportunities, new friendships, practical help for local projects, as well as inspiration during personal and professional transitions.

We come from diverse backgrounds ranging from sustainability to social development, entrepreneurship, health, fashion, technology, and more. We are united by a desire to connect authentically and to support each other by sharing knowledge, skills and resources.

We meet monthly, on the 3rd Monday of each month from 6:30-9:30pm.

What to Expect:

Potluck: We are grateful for everyone’s participation so that we always have a delicious, co-created meal.

Group Dialogue: Each month a community member (aka changemaker spotlight) kickstarts a group dialogue by sharing a personal story or skill in the realm of social impact. Past topics have included risk-taking, networking from the heart, finding meaningful work, imposter syndrome, self care, graphic facilitation, and others.

Ask/Offer Circle: Participants take turns to make an ask and/or offer. It’s always a delight to see see what we can make happen as a group!
