The Social Mind: It's a match!
Whilst the team at The Social Mind we are working away making connections and matching the right expert to the right project, we wanted to share some of the amazing initiatives and projects we have worked over the last couples of months.
Working with Abigal, Founder of we rise.
We Rise is a new community business that aims to grow a generation of enterprising young people in Brixton. They coach disadvantaged youngsters to work on real projects so they develop skills, connections, and learn how to create value for local businesses and organisations.
Abigal, Founder of We Rise, requested support in branding the launch event and assistance with social media artwork.
The Social Mind connected her need with a fantastic branding expert and designer who helped turned the project around within days.

Working with Amani, Founder of Project Yogi.
Project Yogi help young people stay fit and active while learning about their physical wellbeing.
Project Yogi help young people stay fit and active while learning about their physical wellbeing. They teach them how to self-regulate their own emotions and behaviour and give families a chance to bond and spend quality time together.
Project Yogi does this do this by creating tailored programmes, classes and workshops combining yoga, mindfulness and social emotional development activities.
They target vulnerable and disadvantaged young people and families that cannot afford to go to a yoga class. As well as this, still providing services for people that can afford to pay.
Amani, requested advice and direction with her marketing activities and broadening her reach. We connected her with a commercial Director from the London Business School to help her amplify her marketing efforts.
