WASHINGTON, July 7, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The Global Center for Social Entrepreneurship Network's (GCSEN) Professor Mike Caslin recently delivered a first-ever lecture series on "Renewing the Spirit of Enterprise in Millennials via Social Entrepreneurship" to The Fund for American Studies (TFAS) on Tuesday, June 14th.
Professor Caslin was asked to give one lecture to 30 students on the trending topic of social entrepreneurship, but sparked the interest of students from over 90 colleges and universities. TFAS hosted three workshops – one in the morning, one in the afternoon at its national headquarters and one workshop at George Mason University- Arlington.
Workshop attendee and student from Muhlenberg College, Cynthia Silva reported that she, as well as many of her classmates, enjoyed the advice that Professor Caslin was sharing. "We were all impressed with his experience and willingness to teach others through the Boot Camp. In the second workshop, he captivated us with his great public speaking skills and definitely motivated some of my classmates to look into being social entrepreneurs."
Mirroring what was recently taught at the High Impact Social Entrepreneurship (HISE) Boot Camp at Wheaton College in Norton, MA and featured in 169 media outlets with 92 million viewers around the world, Professor Caslin talked about what it means to have millennials create their own social enterprise as a way to "make meaning and make money".
The presentation was so captivating that it inspired one student, Heather Strange from The University of Houston- Downtown, to take the idea of social entrepreneurship and encourage members of Houston Millennials to start their own businesses.
"Everyone has the power to change the world in their own way, by tapping into their unique insights, passions and spirit of enterprise," explained Professor Caslin. He told TFAS students that they can make an impact on their own career and their local community, while also making money and strengthening the local economy.
After the workshop, Professor Caslin encouraged all attending students to view the exciting video www.GCSEN.com/2016 and apply to GCSEN's HISE Boot Camp held at Marist College's School of Management August 15th-19th. This will be the first all-scholarship boot camp in the Hudson Valley and Greater NYC area, and is partially funded by the Sheri Sobrato Brisson Trust with the Silicon Valley Community Foundation and the Diana Davis Spencer Foundation.
