Are you interested in making a sustainable difference in the

About Us
Here at CSI, we offer Young Innovator's Bootcamps in local Ghanaian schools for kids ages 9-15. Our programs are designed to help children gain critical thinking skills as well as specialized skills in topics of design thinking, social innovation, leadership. When the Ghanaian students finish our program, they are more equipped to recognize challenges of poverty that surround them and use the critical thinking skills they learned at the Young Innovator's Bootcamp to innovate and solve these difficult challenges. Our goal is to prepare the next generation of Ghanaian leaders to become flexible, adaptive problem solvers and move the nation forward with entrepreneurship and social innovation.
