our roots

It started with Kyung-Sun Chung’s vision.

He believed that anyone, regardless of culture or status could take on the social issues that affect their communities. All it took was two things: A Unique Idea, and Enough Help to Put it in Action.

In 2012: His efforts resulted in the birth of Root Impact, a Social Venture Firm based in South Korea that provides the tools for Social Entrepeneurs with an idea, helping them bring innovative solutions and positive changes to their communities  - helping them become CHANGEMAKERS.

our world

Kyung-Sun soon took his ambitious ventures to the United States in Las Vegas and New York City and we joined his mission for change in founding Communitas America in 2017.

Communitas America envisions the world where everyone can make a real change. In order to help young social entrepreneurs and Changemakers who endeavor to bring positive changes in the world, Communitas America works to build an ‘Impact Ecosystem’ for more Changemakers and social entrepreneurs to further their mission, solve pressing issues, and sustain their growth.

our bronx changemakers

Part of Communitas America, Communitas Bronx aims to specifically support Changemakers who tackle dire issues in New York City's most under-resourced borough, the Bronx.

In just a short amount of time, we've assembled an amazing network of Changemakers who brought their creative efforts to service the South Bronx and other local communities here, but the work is far from done. With a lot more projects in development, including our Heyground Co-Working Space, we're a few steps closer to realizing more and more social advancements for our home here in New York.
