The Positive Impact Center (PIC) is an intergenerational Community Center with resources for individuals, businesses, and organizations. It is also an innovation hub where we connect with the diversity of our vibrant community and focus on creating a better world for all.
Latest Update: At this time we do not have a permanent site for our dream, however we are preparing for a fundraising phase to opening an 'innovation hub' in Nevada City, which will represent one of our signature programs.

Our story: After developing our vision over the past two years, the Positive Impact Center, Inc. planned to launch in January 2018. While in the final stages of completing business, marketing and cash flow plans the site we had identified was leased to another company. The property manager explained that, because the location is zoned 'light industrial', the property had become highly desirable to new cannabis related businesses.
Nevertheless, we are committed to the project and the groundwork has been established. We are now registered as a California Benefit Corporation and moving ahead to provide opportunities for community members to get involved. Please Contact PIC if you are interested in engaging with us.
We are currently preparing to raise money and designing our internal governance structure based on "sociocracy". At the same time, we are developing our interactive website and a searchable database that will connect members to resources in our community and to one another. Every day we meet people who need high speed internet, training, coaching, tech support or a personal referral to support their business or nonprofit. We hear you and we are working to meet your needs.
In April, 2017, we hosted our soft-launch event when we invited the community for a 'show and tell' and presented ways that you or your local organization can be involved in the PIC. In October, we hosted 30 women leaders representing Nevada County high impact organizations and twelve of those who attended volunteered for our Leadership Council to lead program planning at the PIC. We also hosted several private events in November and December.
The intention of the Positive Impact Center is to support entrepreneurs, socio-spiritual activists, freelancers, artists and community groups who are are doing good work for the people of Nevada County. The purpose is to create jobs and for greater opportunities for alignment, collaboration and to leverage resources for our maximum impact.
