In 2013, CL&D incorporated a poverty reduction strategy as an integral element of the program delivery model. Through our own Social Enterprise Incubation program, we provide opportunities for individuals to:
- Develop the knowledge and skills needed to launch their own businesses
- Find employment in a related industry
- Work together as part of a collective social enterprise
These experiences are particularly valuable for new immigrants, adults, and students as a successful experiential learning program provides value for the Collectives and residents of Regent Park. Along with opportunities to solve problems and work in interdisciplinary teams, experiential learning can also play a valuable role in helping individuals make decisions about future careers and employment pathways.
