Why did you create this innovation?
Provide opportunities for students in grades 6 to 12 to develop and practice social-entrepreneurial skills and 21st century competencies in and outside of school to improve their local and global employability. The Bootstrapping Checklist is designed to scale globally to remain a place where young people can meet and be part of a community that empowers them to solve local and global problems.

The Bootstrapping Checklist is a student social-entrepreneurship network & teacher resource. The program applies an innovative pedagogical approach to encourage service learning and enhance employability for students grade 6-12.
In its second phase of development after successful implementation in classroom settings, the Bootstrapping Checklist is presently a resource for teachers and students who are encouraged to run the program in their classroom and then share their experiences on our social network.
The program is an open innovation, open source initiative licensed under a 4.0 Creative Commons license and using non-proprietary technology including GitHub, Github Classroom, Google Classroom, Discord and Figma.
The Bootstrapping Checklist is designed to scale globally to remain a place where young people can meet at no cost and be part of a community that empowers them to solve local and global problems.
How has it been spreading?
The Bootstrapping Checklist has been spreading via in-class practice, both face-to-face and fully remotely, and shared online to the world using social media.
We have had tremendous support from the Reimagine Education community and the program was Shortlisted to the awards in the Teaching Delivery category in 2016 and to the K-12 category in 2020.
The program is architected to reside on GitHub and with 4.0 Creative Commons license. We will build so that it may connect with GitHub Classroom, Google Classroom, Discord, and Figma.
