You feel equipped to address whatever it is that you need to speak to others about. With those who face depression, you feel empowered to speak about faith and mental health. You know more. Your breadth of knowledge has expanded.”

“I wanted to do something impactful, but I couldn’t settle on one concrete idea. The program definitely helped me sift through all my ideas and put them together. It put me in position to think more seriously about the big impact goal I had been talking about.”

“AWI instructors see the potential in lay people, who have an idea to make a difference in the world but feel unqualified. They empowered me to take a small idea and turn it into something viable and useful, teaching me skills of inclusive leadership, data collection, and business planning.”

“I thought the benefit of the certificate program would be to have a greater sense of what a social entrepreneur was, what a social entrepreneur could imagine, and how they might articulate in some ways. It’s all about capital, but capital without ideas, and without workable ideas, is a lonely place.”
