what is it

The Virtual Impact Lab is a 6-week intensive program offered remotely for undergraduate students through the months of May and June. It aims to develop the next generation of responsible and inclusive leaders by challenging students to complete a social impact consulting project with a nonprofit or social enterprise in South Africa.

Through this full-time program (40h/week), students are challenged to grow on both a personal and professional level through group coaching and mentoring, while while working on high-level, strategic projects that are facilitated by Emzingo|U and local experts.

Immersing themselves deeply in the country of their choice, students learn to work across different cultures and teams in order to effectively support an incredible organization while creating a strong community that will allow them to grow both personally and professionally.
