After conducting a pre-programme needs assessment, we match you with a client who requires to skills and experience you have.

You'll then receive training which will prepare you for your role as a volunteer Consultant. The training covers the essentials you need to know about global and local social entrepreneurship, basic consultancy tools and techniques, and an introduction to start up methods and cross cultural working.

In the second week you'll get started with your client. You’ll carry out your own needs assessment, work with your client to come up with objectives and then break down the stages of your consultancy work into a 5 week plan.

 Additional elements of the programme:

  • Weekly peer to peer knowledge sharing workshops on business topics of your choice
