In 2016, we helped Roller Strategies (now Ten in Ten) train a team of leaders working inside the “Grove 3547” project. Grove 3547 was a “social lab,” a collaborative effort designed to enroll, train, and support young leaders and entrepreneurs in the Bronzeville area of Chicago, located approximately between 35th and 47th Avenues on the South Side.
In support of this effort, we created “Grove Inside,” a comprehensive video course designed to familiarize the project leaders with the theory and practice of social labs. That training included fundamental know-how and practices for developing creativity, strengthening communication, and effective leadership, among other areas.
Roller Strategies specialized in designing and running social labs, for which our capacity building methods are a natural fit.
