Sara Young – Kitts Underwear

What does your social enterprise do?

Kitts donates a pair of underwear to charity for every pair sold. We’re founded on two simple ideas: first, underwear is important, second, there are no small acts of kindness. Everything you do to help others has a the potential to make a huge difference.

How has the SSE supported you in the development of your enterprise?

There are so many wonderful things to say about SSE Ontario. From its amazing leadership and staff, to the very well curated curriculum, to the insightful guest speakers and inspiring fellow students, everything and everyone is aimed at helping you learn, grow and succeed, not only as an entrepreneur, but as a human being.

One thing that has really stood out is the amount of understanding, the lack of judgement and genuine support. Trying to be an entrepreneur is tough, a social entrepreneur even harder. The SSE really gets that it’s not a straight line and everyone is on a journey.

My fellow students are also amazingly supportive and absolutely inspiring. Each student is so unique and has a different perspective to contribute to the class. This makes for classes that are very deep and enriching. I know we will be bonded for a long time after we graduate from the program. I feel blessed to be part of such an amazing school and very grateful for the experience.
