Working with people from all over the world, learning new leadership skills, spending six months in the Bay Area—it’s an amazing opportunity, particularly since my university gives me credit.Feifan Xu, Collabriv trainee from Yingkou, China
Learning in the 21st Century
If you want to gain 21st century skills—skills like global understanding, communication and collaboration—try a 21st century way of learning: Spend six months in a country far from home. Join a team of talented young professionals from around the world. In that team, work with a local company, study leadership and receive professional mentoring—for which you get academic credit. Return home with a new mindset, a new skillset, and a new determination to make change happen locally and globally.
The future of business
Business is the most powerful force on the planet today. If we want to bring about a more equitable, sustainable and secure world, we must make sure that social and environmental bottom lines matter as much as the financial. With Collabriv, one of the first California benefit corporations, you will learn from the leaders of social ventures working to make both profit and real change.
Your place in the 21st Century
We promise many challenges over the course of six months: learning to work with people from very different cultures, living with a homestay family, re-examining your initial career choices, broadening your mindset. We also promise that you’ll return home more engaged, connected and skilled; supported by a lifelong network of colleagues, friends and mentors; and ready to benefit your family, company, community, and world.
