KINGSTON, N.Y., Aug. 23, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The Global Center for Social Entrepreneurship Network (GCSEN) was recently honored to host a visit by noted author, national philanthropist, and lead sponsor Sheri Sobrato Brisson at its newly operational Venturator, located in Kingston, NY.
In addition to being a founding sponsor of GCSEN with the Silicon Valley Community Foundation, Sheri Sobrato Brisson has blended her experience as a cancer survivor and M.A. in Counseling Psychology to co-author along with Rose Offner, M.F.A., Digging Deep: A Journal for Young People Facing Health Challenges. She founded and manages Resonance House to philanthropically distribute the journal, whose mission is to empower young people facing health challenges build emotional strength and resilience through journaling.
Her support of GCSEN reflects the mutual passion for creating ventures that combine people, profit, and planet to improve the quality of life for all citizens.
GCSEN was established in 2015 to develop a place where social entrepreneurs can learn value-creating entrepreneur language, skills, concepts and practices. The Venturator provides a space where they can act on and transform the root causes of poverty, marginalization, environmental deterioration and the accompanying loss of human dignity in many communities across America and around the world today.
As our certified social entrepreneur (CSE) succeeds, transformation occurs first at the personal level, then within his or her family, community, the local economy and then reaches beyond to regional, national, and global community marketplaces!
Sheri Sobrato Brisson supports GCSEN because she trusts in our mission. "I believe in people's ability to change the world, and what a better way to start than to take these ideas that people have and make an idea a reality," explained Sobrato-Brisson when she was asked 'Why GCSEN?'.
"Sheri Sobrato Brisson and her husband Eric Brisson are setting a new standard for strategic, high impact social entrepreneur sponsors. They are helping bring together the amazing resources and talents of the Hudson Valley and the Silicon Valley," said Professor Mike Caslin, Founder and President of GCSEN.
Sheri Sobrato Brisson joins other visionary GCSEN Sponsors, such as The Diana Davis Spencer Foundation, and The Karen and Bob Jones Foundation.
GCSEN plans to invite Sheri Sobrato Brisson to return and share her lessons learned from Digging Deep, as well as lessons learned on local economic development from her philanthropic ventures.
