Impact+ House

Join a network of innovative teams creating change. Designed for CSIS alumni and their collaborators, Impact+ House brings together small teams integrating social innovation within their organizations.

Impact+ House 2018 is a four-day immersive program at a 600 acre estate in the rolling green hills of central Vermont, where small teams gain the resources, training and community support they need to advance their organization’s impact. Alumni from any CSIS program (residential or online) are eligible to apply with 1–4 members of your team. Our global network is a fast-growing community of remarkable thinkers and doers, working in social impact across diverse sectors; we’re thrilled to offer an opportunity to open the door for colleagues of current alumni.

Teams explore purpose and vision, connect with a community of changemakers, and home in on the challenges standing in the way of their maximum impact.
