How will we support you?
Before we set off to South Africa, we will hold regular online meetings to help you to get to know and build your team. We cover key leadership and entrepreneurship sessions during the online meetings, so that you hit the ground running when you land in South Africa!
Using our extensive alumni network, we will be able to help you to understand the key challenges facing the communities you will have the opportunity to meet.
To break the ice we will also hold a fun filled weekend away so you can meet everyone in person and get to know the team leaders.
