COURSES

Our Collision-Happy Courses are designed and sequenced to inspire, guide, and equip changemakers with the skills, aptitudes and mindsets needed for a world that is increasingly more interdisciplinary, collaborative, and entrepreneurial. Deeply influenced by our Rewilding Pedagogy, which flattens the hierarchical relationship between the student and teacher, we complement our courses with out-of-the-classroom experiences, one-on-one coaching and mentoring from our ever-expanding network of social entrepreneurs, activists, and socially-minded professionals.


It’s been estimated that college graduates have 80,000 working hours in their career. If they desire to build a better world for themselves and future generations, their choice of career is one of their best opportunities to do so. This is our changemaker incubator. We help students imagine their future selves as investigative journalists, B-corp founders, grassroots movement mobilizers and more.

Full Disclosure

Our courses will not equip you with every skill and aptitude a changemaker needs. They can’t. However, we’ll let you know what you need (see our Curriculum). And, even better, since our courses are designed to unleash your inner-bootstrapper, you’ll just go get what you need.
