The Cx CoPilot Fellowship was a unique journey for young changemakers in Ontario who believe in the power of social innovation and entrepreneurship to change the world. Our goal was to equip our CoPilots with a unique set of tools to amplify an idea or project that has the potential to change a person, neighbourhood, community, country, or maybe even the world!

Participants experienced four days of intensive training where they learned crucial concepts in social innovation and entrepreneurship, including systems thinking, design, design thinking, and evaluation. We also explored personal development growth, including the psychology of social change concepts, leadership, mindfulness, and scaling change.

Following the training, we supported and mentored our CoPilots for up to eight months in a peer-to-peer setting to keep the momentum going, explore new questions, and re-visit old answers as participants develop their idea and project into a social innovation or social enterprise.
