The Social Leapfrog program is a reflection and capacitation customized program for hybrid social organizations, taking place for three years, which aims to support organizations in "taking a leap" in terms of impact and sustainability. It has the support of Nova SBE's community (students, alumni, faculty, staff, and partners) through student projects (Master's thesis, student clubs, and pro bono internships), traditional educational training (Master's courses and Nova SBE Executive Education programs), mentoring and coaching programs, workshops with faculty from the school, among others.
The pilot edition started in 2019 with seven social organizations from the Metropolitan Area of Lisbon: A Barragem, Ajuda de Mãe, Alzheimer Portugal, Biovilla, Cercica, Mezze and Semear. The second edition is starting the diagnostic phase with ten pre-selected organizations from different parts of the country: Aria, Arcil, Associação Salvador, CECD, Centro Social de Soutelo, CRESCER, Fundação Dr. José Lourenço Júnior, Just a Change, U.Dream, and Vila com Vida.
This program is part of the Social Equity Initiative, a partnership between Nova SBE, BPI, and the "la Caixa" Foundation, which aims to promote Portugal's social sector with a long-term vision.
