Social Enterprise

Social Enterprises are business endeavors that blend profit generation with an organization's social mission and other outcomes not traditionally available in a purely business model. Quite often the social mission involves training and skills development that leverage business to create learning opportunities in a 'real' work setting. The resulting experience is often reported as both meaningful to the trainee/employee while also reflecting an appreciation by the enterprise for the challenges faced by many entering the workforce for the first time or after a long absence. Accommodations and other supports are common in this model. They often provide experience to assist people transition into other competitive employment opportunities as well.
