What it isn’t
- A “passive” learning journey – you’ll drive the change
- A startup factory – ventures aren’t the only way to drive that change
- Somewhere that believes you have to quit your job to make a difference
Like everything we do at Zinc, the Academy is mission-driven, trans-sector, action-obsessed, applies the best research and knows that the journey is yours to own.
The programme is split into three 3-month phases – Open & Discover, Inspire & Design and Embed & Change:
Open & Discover
Be exposed to a radical and comprehensive mental health curriculum. Receive support to help you explore your own connection to the mission area, understand your particular skill set and how you can drive meaningful change.
Inspire & Design
Build connections with successful innovators inside the mental health space and take part in creative workshops to focus your interest and design your plan.
Embed & Change
Activate your plan alongside the sustained support of an Executive Coach, a Mental Health Mentor, the Zinc Team, and your fellow Cohort.
Continue to be part of the extensive and valuable Zinc community.
