Live cohort

Multiple participants smiling virtually in a cohort

With an intentionally curated group of up to 36 classmates, you'll spend 1-2 hours each week learning key concepts from experts, practicing skills together, and working with your new friends for peer mentorship and accountability.

Private community

You get lifetime access to the online Soapbox Project membership community, which includes a 50% discount on all upcoming courses, free biweekly fireside chats, in-person action opportunities, and connections with past cohort members.

Detailed worksheets

Demonstrative examples of 3 worksheets: Identify your influence, Are you solving the right problem, and Accountability frameworks for systemic change

You'll get detailed worksheets with key concepts and prompts to turn your knowledge into action. Our lessons will be very interactive and you won't have "homework", so these worksheets are YOURS to take home and use as you wish. I find them useful as tools for deeper reflection and momentum-building.

Expert office hours

Every other week, we'll host a special office hours-style session with a different sustainability expert. This is the place for you to ask any questions you weren't able to on the live sessions and/or get to know speakers more personally!

Holistic sustainability

We see you as a whole human. In addition to the standard impact-y stuff, in our membership community, we seek out mental health sessions, create partnerships with recruiters, share meme threads, and so much more. This is a place where you get to be yourself and make friends with people who care about the same things you do. (That's a pic of me and another Soapbox member in the process of becoming best friends and making spring rolls with edible flowers!)

Hi, I'm Nivi, your sustainable squad facilitator.

Hi everyone! I'm so excited to curate a "staff" of experts, fashionistas, content creators, and academics to guide you through this course.

My specialty is connecting the dots and simplifying the fight against climate change so that it's FUN and approachable. When I first shared Soapbox with the world, I was profiled in this New York Times article for my take on bite-sized, truly sustainable action. Since then, I've helped 5,000+ people around the world make a difference on issues that matter to them!

Now, I'm bringing this energy to you in the form of a lil course! Here's a sample of our teachers; more will be added as we get closer to the date.

What participants say

Don't take my word for it - hear from your new friends!

The accountability and inspiration I got from this cohort was exactly what I needed to make an impact during my day-to-day job. I wrote myself a new job description, got leadership buy-in, and even kept going after I got a "no" thanks to encouragement from this community!

Madison K.
Supply Chain Sales Professional
Having our cohort as a "practice arena" and actually talk through the script of social change made me a more confident and capable activist.

Rob C.
Customer Success Senior Manager
Over this cohort, I've really developed a sense of "being in this together". Even on weeks where we haven't had many updates, hearing others keeps the momentyum and accountability - this component has been the most valuable for me.

What's the pricing structure of this course?
Arrow (clickable)

Each cohort is limited to 36 students, and the pricing for April 2022's course is: 

1. $150 till 2/18
2. $250 till 3/18
3. $350 till 3/27

Registration closes on March 27, 2022.

Pro tip: Get your employer to cover the costs if they offer a learning/professional development budget.

How do I register?
Arrow (clickable)

Once you submit your (very short) sign-up form, you'll be notified within 48 hours if your registration has been approved! We'll send you the payment link as well as a link to my (me = Nivi) calendar for an invitation to a 1:1 intro chat. This is optional, but I find it's helpful to have a friendly face going into any new commitment!

What experience do I need to participate?
Arrow (clickable)

Formally - NONE!! The ONLY pre-requisite for this cohort is that (as Michelle Kim said in The Wake Up), you have an earnest desire to change yourself and engage in this topic with honesty and accountability. If you commit to approaching this program with curiosity, prioritizing good impacts vs. good intentions, and focusing disagreements on systems vs. individual humans, this is for you. Even if you know nothing about fast fashion and you can't recite a single statistic about climate change, if you meet this pre-requisite, you are experienced enough.

If I'm a Soapbox Project Founding Member, do I have to pay for this?
Arrow (clickable)

It's absolutely free for you if you're a Founding Member! We could not have gotten here without your support.

What if I want to participate but I can't afford it?
Arrow (clickable)

If you don't have an employer or company budget that you can spend on this program, we are committed to finding you options. In the registration form, we'll ask you if you require a needs-based sponsorship from Soapbox Project. In our 15-minute chat, we can talk about what that looks like and alternative ways you can contribute.
