ANALYZE THE PROBLEM - ONLINE ROUND 1

 

FIND YOUR PROBLEM

"WHAT'S YOUR PROBLEM?" WORKSHOP ON TRELLO.COM

UNDERSTAND YOUR PROBLEM VIDEO

Student teams are encouraged to “apprentice with” a social or environmental issue of their choice in this round. Jessamyn Shams-Lau, Director of the Peery Foundation, used the term “apprenticing with the problem” in courses she taught at Brigham Young University. The phrase is a call to invite students to work with, learn from, or do hands-on research in an existing organization or community effort as a means of learning more about a problem and the system holding it in place. Using this approach, students are enabled to find opportunities and contribute to change, rather than initially jumping in to take the lead on starting a new venture to solve it. A great tool to help you apprentice with your problem is Daniela Papi-Thornton’s  Impact Gaps Canvas which she highlights in her report, Tackling Heropreneurship. We encourage you to use the Impact Gaps Canvas to help answer questions about your problem,  study existing solutions and help you develop an idea that offers sustainable impact.
