Quincea- Creating Empowering and Sustainable Programs for Developmentally Disabled Adults and Transitioning Veterans

Quincea_Logo_300x79

Quincea is the brainchild of the Ivy Council Social Enterprise Alumni Team (Ivy Council SEAT) who identified an urgent need to create  a series of economically self-sustaining social enterprise ventures employing persons facing barriers to employment in metro Phoenix.  In Phase One, this nonprofit venture will be developing purpose driven jobs for  developmentally disabled adults , transitioning military veterans and at risk youth. This innovative program has been supported by dozens of dedicated, passionate alumni and community leader volunteers.  In turn, the Ivy Council has sponsored over a dozen undergraduate and graduate social enterprise research fellows from Harvard, Stanford, University of Pennsylvania, Johns Hopkins, Arizona State and University of Arizona who have helped shape the program’s business plans.  The initial social enterprise businesses were launched in the spring of 2016.
