Nova SBE Fellows participated in a social impact initiative in partnership with Everis, another benefactor of the program, the Municipality of Cascais and the Community Center Parish of Carcavelos [Centro Comunitário Paróquia de Carcavelos – CCPC] to work on sustainability and social responsibility issues. The social impact challenge, also known as “Impact Challenge”, intended to help students develop the technical skills they will need for the job market while aiming to help CCPC.
In light of Nova SBE’s move to Carcavelos, this initiative also aims to help the local community solve their most pressing problems enabling them to continuously provide social services.
The Fellows were challenged to find solutions for CCPC – a community center that takes in children, families, and the elderly, assisting in numerous social and employability areas – by asking students how they could guarantee CCPC’s financial sustainability for the next years.
The goal was to try to solve the community center’s most pressing issues while assuring that it will still have the capacity to provide its social services. For a five-month period, the Fellows will work side by side with Everis consultants to implement the most impactful project for the community center.
