About Strategies For Social Change

Social change organizations make extraordinary things happen.

They protect our environment, defend our civil rights, advance educational and job opportunities and help to build stronger and healthier communities. Each one of us directly or indirectly benefits from the leadership and hard work of social change groups. Strategies for Social Change (SSC) believes in the powerful, transformative impact social change groups have upon our society and we work to make them even stronger.

Our mission is to help social change groups transform the world.

We design innovative strategies and solutions to help organizations increase their resources, maximize strategic impact and achieve their vision for a better world. We actively support the values and principles of social justice, community leadership and inclusion. Our services are designed to strengthen community voices and leadership capacity.


What Makes Us Different?

Developing Leadership Organizations.

Our services are designed to foster the development of dynamic, cutting-edge organizations, recognized as leaders in their field and known for organizational excellence.

Advancing Strategic Thinking.

We help nonprofits to create learning environments and social change laboratories. We enable staff to make better use of social research, trends analysis and outcome evaluation data to design superior programs and advocacy campaigns.

Building Lasting Partnerships.

Just as social change organizations invest in their communities, we invest in organizations that make communities stronger. We focus on building relationships that foster trust and insight rather than merely providing a short-term service.

Our world needs social change organizations that are strong, resilient and impactful and that doesn’t happen overnight. We conduct a thorough organizational assessment and help you design a roadmap to meet your immediate and long term goals for organizational health, sustainability and impact.
