Born Social Fellowship: Dan Pallotta at Carleton University

Impact Hub Ottawa is thrilled to announce a new partnership with 1125@Carleton, CUSA, and RECODE, to deliver a unique leadership development program, Born Social Fellowship, to Carleton students in the upcoming new year.

Born Social believes in the ability for our youth to lead a more just and sustainable world by activating leaders with ideas, that from inception, are driven by the impact that they will have on the world around us.

The Born Social Fellowship will provide 10 selected Carleton students the opportunity to partake in a four-month learning experience that includes hands-on training that applies their skill development directly to civic issues facing our community, local and global connections, professional field experiences, and  peer support that enable Fellows to incubate world-changing social enterprises.

This exciting new program will launch and open applications Nov 16th at a special talk with renowned social innovator, Dan Pallotta, presented by Carleton University Students’ Association (CUSA), 1125@Carleton, and the Student Philanthropy Council (SPC).

Join us for his engaging talk about innovation, and social entrepreneurship:


A portion of ticket  proceeds will go towards funding the Born Social Fellowship and student social entrepreneurship!
