What if behavior could change without treating yourself like an animal?

Cooperative Impact is an evidence-based evolutionary theory that invites learners to decide how they want to change themselves based on who they are right now. We ask questions like, "Who would you like to become? What do you believe about yourself and the world? What is important to you?"

This is an invitation for learners to bring their whole self into the way they carve out a place for themselves in the new economy. What if such a change could start from within? What if that change could be initiated by the individual rather than (sometimes) through violent aggression? What would that world look like?

Cooperative Impact is built upon the Four Movements.

The intention is to create space for a person to intentionally evolve themselves in a way that influences their behavior along the journey. This journey is not linear. It is, perhaps, a spiral. Ongoing. Evolutionary.


Come back home to yourself and take full ownership of your life.


Develop relationships with culturally aligned people, places, and things.


Cultivate the underutilized potential from within your community.


Bring projects through the venture life cycle that start from within.

There are six archetypes that we tend to embody as we move through the movements.

The Self

We are beautifully and wonderfully made, every one of us, with a role to plqy as part of a global community of others where seeing, nurturing, and empowering who we are, will see us flourish as part of humanity.

The Listener

Sawubona, peace be with you. I see you and your heritage, I hear your story and wish to be here with you, only to understand you moree, to hold you in this space, now.

The Storyteller

The story is us, it is in us and of us made manifest through the fullest expression of self as a part of a community of others where we share our stories in equity to create meaning and life.

The Creator

Our beauty in expression as gift and as part of creation is to create as one with the genesis, the beginning to the now, and we bring all that we are and all that we do, to bear, in making.

The Gatherer

We are found most fully in gathering, in finding the others, in inviting together in our way, being, as an expression born of our gifts and emboldedened in the paradigm of wanting to walk with others.

The Manager

The gift, the child within grow, the conscious mind develops and endures that metamorphosis and we learn then apply skill so that the work we do to build provision finds full expression in roganization and disciplined, chose, patterns.

Project-based learning experience for visionary leaders to create a cohort-driven program that can evolve themselves, their communities, and the ecosystems that support them.

Emergence is an adaptation from its original 16-week program we first launched in 2010 at Rutgers University. Back then, the learners focused on the community within and around their university. Today, learners have expanded their understanding of community without borders.


21-day immersive experience to learn how to transmute who you are and what you believe into income-producing digital assets.

Worldbuilders is a 21-day immersive retreat experience that was inspired by the 2020 Emergence cohort who turned out to truly be Worldbuilders. We tested the retreat concept in Costa Rica in 2021, and are now gearing up to follow through with the end-to-end journey in November 2022.


Four eight-hour days of experimental workshops to create valuable projects for your world while using business to sustain and maximize your impact.

Cooperative Impact first began as a Social Innovation Unconference. After immersing into the community in 2014, we developed relationships with cross-sector stakeholders who had beautiful stories to share. The event felt like a natural next step.

Cooperative Impact

Cooperative Impact is for the person who refuses to accept the world that was given to them. It's for the person who wakes up everyday inspired and excited to be a part of something bigger than themself. They are the independent thinker with their own point of view. They want to meet good people, create meaningful projects, and build companies that change the way we live, work, love, and play. That's what they are all about, and that's what they do here at the school for worldbuilders.
