rooted programs

Emzingo|U offers high-level, structured programs to students that are driven by social impact and responsible leadership. In addition to workshops and training, these programs give students the opportunity to consult for real social enterprises and NGO's to truly connect and learn from the bottom line: people, planet and profit. 

All our programs share one common structure, based on three core principles: learn, live, lead. This means that during any of our programs students will:

LEARN

not only about the country students work with and the social impact world, but about themselves and their interests too, through various workshops, seminars, coaching sessions and reflections. This is the central part of the program as the main focus is to inspire responsible leadership.

LIVE

the experience of a new country. Whether the program is remote or in-person, it will invite the students to immerse themselves into a new culture, with sessions on its social, historical and economic context and a real-world experience working alongside an organization from that country.

LEAD

a social impact project with a social enterprise or an NGO from one of the countries we work in. Our project-based learning approach involves working in teams with other students to help the chosen field partner find the most relevant and immediately applicable solutions.
