Description

CareerX: NYU Info Session presented by the NYU Social Entrepreneurship Program

Join us January 26: Ashoka Fellow Greg Van Kirk and Your Project X have launched a “first-of-a-kind” multi-country internship and personalized leadership program - CAREER X. You will gain experience in design thinking, social entrepreneurship, cross-cultural team building, and consulting - all skills that employers are deeply focused on. You’ll also create a measurable impact in the NYC community and in Guatemala.

If you apply and are accepted, you will gather 2 Sundays a month, beginning this February and work in teams to solve ‘wicked’ challenges’ here in NYC. Then you’ll travel to Guatemala for 7 days during Spring Break. You’ll take what you've learned in NYC and consult for organizations and entrepreneurs that are focused on challenges that you're passionate about. This fall students are tackling NYC challenges such as food waste, youth homelessness, and more. You will complete CAREER X with actual internship experience, a huge mentor network (including the leadership from Warby Parker, Deloitte, Ashoka, IBM, and others) and even build your own social ventures here in NYC. You’ll also receive recognition of completion from Columbia Business School “Venture for All” for a course in Social Innovation for Sustainable Development.

Snacks will be served! Grab your spot today!
