Social Change Projects
Our work with values-aligned partners on the foundations, development, implementation and animation of their projects, programs or gatherings.
In addition to our core charitable programs, CKX works with values-aligned partners to support their own pursuit of social change agency. Our agency model brings together the skills, experience and imagination needed to design, develop and deliver social change initiatives that are rooted in our commitment to the use of reflective practices, place-based learning and deep knowledge exchange to spark fundamental shifts in society.
These projects allow us to earn income that we reinvest in the agency to support our core charitable programs.
