WHAT IS SOCIAL INNOVATION?

It means bringing to life God’s grander vision for the world as described by Catholic Social Teaching in ways that are:

  • More humane
  • More just
  • More effective
  • More sustainable

The new Social Innovation Lab is an innovative approach to hands-on education, community engagement and Catholic identity. JPII students will collaborate with social entrepreneurs and corporate mentors to develop innovative solutions to “real world” social problems in Collin County.

During the Fall Semester, through site visits, guest speakers and direct service, students learn about the complex social issues that affect our neighbors in Collin County.  In the SIL, students train on methods of problem-solving and innovation.

During the Spring Semester, students are embedded with a local non-profit and work in teams, coached by mentors, to apply the techniques they have learned to help improve the agency’s services to achieve greater social impact.
