We Are Social Solution Architects
There is a social problem you are concerned about and we help you solve it.
The Prep Institute, LLC consults with and teaches social investors and nonprofit organizations on designing and implementing simple, disruptive, and preventive solutions to eliminate and lessen social issues.
What is the root cause of social challenges?
Why Consult and Train with Us
Our unique Solutions Lab sidesteps informational workshops. You will learn how to prepare and practice the steps to design or redesign your solution. Root cause analysis will identify the real social problem and examine it from a broader system's point of view. Our Solutions Incubator offers three years of ongoing coaching and training to help you perform the critical activities to implement your social solution.
Why Our Work is Important
Our response to the alarming rise of social challenges in our multi-ethnic communities is to provide social solutions training that teaches how to transform disruptive, simple, and preventive solutions into productive action. New solutions to eliminate and lessen social challenges require new approaches. Our training answers your questions about how to turn social solutions into reality.
