SIP Student Chapters incubates youth change-makers in various tertiary institutions. SIP provides advice to the chapters when they plan activities in their school and also engage them to be our volunteers for large scale events like GSIF. We intend to further engage them by co-organizing student camps or seminars to educate and enrich them on social entrepreneurship.
The aim of SIP Chapters is to create platforms worldwide that support the exchange for ideas, network and innovations to build a more inclusive, sustainable and better world. Each chapter plays an active role by developing the social entrepreneurship movement in their local or school community, contributing in to the success of the social entrepreneurship movement worldwide.
SIP began forming SIP Chapters at major institutes of higher learning in Singapore in 2007. Each SIP Chapter in Singapore is a student-led movement to promote social entrepreneurship and Innovation. Foreign leaders catalyze change in their local or school communities through International SIP Chapters. The first International SIP Chapter was founded at Yale University, USA in Fall 2007. Since then, International Chapters have started at Fudan University, China (2008), and in Japan (2008), Kashmir (2008), and Indonesia (2008).
SIP Chapters initiate their own projects and events and also partner with SIP, social entrepreneurs and the public and private sector on meaningful projects. Past projects have included speaking events with Singapore Social Entrepreneurs of the Year, organizing a social enterprise Bazaar similar to SIP’s PaTH Market, running a social enterprise business plan competition, developing online platforms, and creating or assisting a social enterprise.
We are forming SIP Chapters both in Singapore and internationally. Join us in doing good and doing well today!
