Join a network of innovative teams creating change.

Designed for CSIS alumni + their collaborators, Impact+ House will bring together small teams working to integrate social innovation within their organizations.

Impact+ House 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 their 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.

Submissions due Thursday, May 10th.

Admissions notifications sent by May 15th.

Registration and program deposit due May 31st.

Our surrounding environment can lift us from the ordinary and serve as a conduit for creativity and connection; This is why we picked Galusha Hill Farm & Lodge in central Vermont to host the 2018 Impact+ House.

Situated on a majestic 600-acre parcel complete with an organic farm, a lake for water sports, miles of trails for hiking and running, and surrounded by an additional 1000 acres of conserved land, Galusha is an inspirational setting to unplug from the everyday hustle-and-bustle, get focused, and move forward with intention.

“The whole experience was phenomenal – from the location, to the content, the facilitators, and the fellows. I’m super excited for what comes next. I feel like the program gave me the opportunity to zoom out with a bunch of brilliant minds – and now I’ve got a much clearer and more strategic path ahead.”
