THIS ISN'T OUR FIRST RODEO!

We launched Social Entrepreneur Corps over 15 years ago. Since then we've created unique experiences for 2,000+ students and professionals to create impact in Guatemala, Ecuador, Nicaragua, The Dominican Republic, Peru and Costa Rica. We have long-standing relationships with partners such as the University of Notre Dame, Miami University, Northwestern University and Warby Parker, to name a few. Our years of experience have empowered us with the expertise and helped us to build the local relationships necessary to successfully pivot to virtual and hybrid programs.
