Join our Workplace Innovation Community 

Workplace Innovation is  a community where changemakers work with a host organization to solve identified problems.Teams are trained through an innovation framework to identify opportunities and design for the most impactful problems. 

Some of these opportunities include:

Innovator Support

Throughout their participation in the Workplace Innovation Community, students will receive: 

  • Learn and practice innovation management and problem solving
  • Work with a host organization to design, build and test prototypes
  • Collaborate with a multi-disciplinary team of students
  • Resources and support to implement a solution that makes meaningful social or environmental impact 
  • Funding opportunities to move their projects forward

Organizational Support

GreenHouse works with an amazing group of partner organizations, who support the innovation work. When signing up to be a host organization, you will invest 50 hours of time over 4-8 months with students and assign an "innovation broker" to make connections between the innovation team and the organization.  

As an organization in the program you will receive: 

  • Training to identify an appropriate innovation challenge
  • Access to a youth innovation team and the ideas created by them
  • Support from GreenHouse to facilitate interactions with the team
  • Access to GreenHouse space for meeting and sessions if needed
