Join our community

Do you want to make an impact? GreenHouse is a community for innovators who want to create social or environmental change.  

You can join this community in two main ways:

  • Join Workplace Innovation, a community where changemakers work with a host organization to solve identified problems. 

  • Join Innovators in Residence, a community where student innovators receive mentorship, training and funding to launch their own venture.

Other ways to get involved: 

  • Attend a Discovery Lab , where innovators engage with organizations to find meaningful problems to work on.
  • Enroll in SVENT, where you can get course credit for your work.

Discovery Labs

On November 26th, in partnership with the Volunteer Action Centre, we invite you to participate in the Future of Volunteering Discovery Lab hosted by GreenHouse. During the lab, you will have a facilitated discussion around the future of volunteering in our community. This lab will focus on enabling social change by making volunteering more accessible, meaningful and inclusive to youth and new Canadians. At the lab, our partner organizations will talk about some key challenges and successes in the volunteering space. Then, we will have a facilitated discussion between youth and stakeholders to identify opportunities for innovation in this space. The opportunities for innovation will act as inspiration for those who want to move those ideas forward. To register click here.
