In 2013 as leaders of a youth movement called FeelGood, we partnered with a technology company in San Francisco to be the first social movement use case of their online tool Qrew, which became essential in our process of engaging and training communities of youth as social entrepreneurs.
To invest in Crew, a white label tool, as shared infrastructure designed to amplify the work of social movements and education programs.
Two years later we inherited coding rights to the platform, called it Crew, and launched a pilot initiative called Crew 2030 funded by the Enlight Foundation. Our goal: to invest in this white label tool as shared infrastructure designed to amplify the work of social movements and education programs. And share it for free with 12 social and education movements by 2017.
In 2017 the Enlight Foundation invited us to launch the Enlight Collaborative, taking the platform a step further: bringing together the programs in our network in cohorts that we called collaboratives to share best practices, wisdom and invest in collaboration amongst members.
We are now a vibrant online platform with the privilege of supporting 29 organizations who are mobilizing over 1,500 communities, reaching over 30,000 members in 45 countries, the pilot has been a success!
