Cause Consulting’s New Website

by Mark Feldman

This week we’ll formally launch our new causeconsulting.com website.  Now that our version 3.0 is up, we’ve forced ourselves to pause, reflect and take the time to read our own stuff.   Wow, we’ve covered a lot of ground.  We are truly grateful for the gift of being able to work with and learn from so many amazing clients, colleagues and friends.  Each week as the corporate responsibility field evolves, we find ourselves engaged in even more new and exciting work.  We are lucky!

As I step back to reflect, it is clear that what we do continues to be more relevant and important.  Our progression from strategic signature programs, to corporate responsibility, to social innovation mirrors the maturation and expansion of our field.  We are fortunate to work inside of some of the world’s most respected companies and brands and help them harness their resources toward creating both business and social value.  It has been amazing to see how social impact-related ideas rally diverse groups of employees and consumers to action, and impact.  This is how change happens.

Youth Design Competition Winners Announced – Cause Consulting Sponsor

by Mark Feldman

Joseph Soto Design Winner Cause Consulting was proud to be a Youth Design partner and the sponsor of the 2011 Youth Design Time to Design Competition. This past summer, the urban high school teens in the Youth Design Internship program were tasked to design an image or a message about a social issue that was important to them. Over a seven week period, they were required to select and research social issues, develop design concepts, work with expert design mentors, go through two rounds of professional design reviews, and submit their work to a panel of expert judges. The final designs were nothing short of amazing.

We are honored to share the ten top designs with you. Click here to seem them all.   Congratulations to Joseph Soto for his powerful winning piece on how smoking can kill your whole body and mind.  Joseph spent his paid Youth Design summer internship at Blue Cross of Massachusetts and worked with his mentors to create this powerful piece of work.

Youth Design Helps Urban Teens Find Path

by Nikki Korn

“Opened my eyes to possibilities.” “Embraced and treated me like a professional.” “Best summer of my life.” These are some of the many testimonials that I heard from teens at the 2011 Youth Design graduation. For many of these students, this was the first time they had stepped out of their neighborhoods and into the design community.

This summer, twenty-eight lucky Boston, urban high school students were chosen for coveted paid summer jobs in the design world through the Youth Design program. Teens were paired with professional mentors at design and architecture firms, corporate design departments, university creative teams, and at ad agencies where they worked full-time for seven weeks. They were welcomed onto design teams to become part of collaborative and individual projects that quickly showed them how design translates to a range of careers and tangible assignments across many industries and fields. They also realized how design is a part of every facet of our lives; impacting where we live, work, travel, and play.

“Opened my eyes to possibilities.”  “Embraced and treated me like a professional.”  “Best summer of my life.”  These are some of the many testimonials that the audience heard from teens … Continue reading

WOW, Adobe Youth Voices Live!

by Tali Golan

I recently attended my first Adobe Youth Voices Live! event at Boston’s Institute of Contemporary Art (ICA). I was blown away by the films and other media produced by the Boston AYV youth. Please take time to check them out

The issues the young people raised included peer pressure to fit in, the pain of that first heartbreak, the importance of friendship, bullying, and societal problems such as poverty, violence, and human rights. Their ability to articulate the complexity of these issues (which most adults have a hard time doing), express how their lives have been affected, and openly and honestly share personal stories was really inspiring.
