Please note, that this kind of work experience isn't for everyone, and we won't pretend that building social enterprises isn't an inherently challenging experience. If you are committed to helping shape a positive and sustainable global impact, then we want to hear from you. We are seeking passionate and socially-minded applicants with the courage to step out of their comfort zone and the persistence to thrive in the challenges of international development and grassroots entrepreneurship.
*The personal safety of our students and the safety of the communities we work with is of huge importance to us, and all our decision-making around how we’re driving change in the face of such uncertainty is being done with this in mind. The Global Impact Programs are currently on hold until we can return to safe international travel however, we are still taking expressions of interest, and applications for our other Impact Programs.
