What are social innovation projects?

Social Innovation projects supported by dHL are led by teams of educators and stakeholders who have a vested interest in creating meaningful educational opportunities for K-12 students. Social innovation projects provide students with experiences to recognize and act on the power they have for making a positive difference in the world. By creating opportunities for students to experience how positive change happens, and more importantly how they can be both designers and leaders in creating change, we raise students’ awareness through empathy, giving them choice and voice to affect positive change in the world right now.
