Global Encounters is made possible by a large group of dedicated, energetic, and passionate volunteers, many of whom are alumni. Given that there are numerous streams of work that need to be undertaken to run the program, sustain its energy, and ensure excellence for the segments of the communities it serves, we are always looking for individuals to bring expertise, skill, and an unquenchable thirst for impact in the form of sustained voluntary service. Check out our current opportunities for those who wish to serve.
Global Encounters Alumni Association Service Learning Consultancy

Have you thought about being a consultant and providing your skills and experience to an organization or cause? Are you passionate about service and development? We have another exciting opportunity for our GE camps alumni!
The Service Consultancy Project aims to provide an enhanced workspace for GE camps alumni to address social issues in our communities. With the focus being around service learning and providing a platform to engage in solving real world issues with fellow alumni, the program will be partnering with various organizations that can support and facilitate a learning experience for alumni that leverages their expertise in addressing real-world social issues in a project-based manner.
The Service Consultancy Project is a 6-week program wherein the partnering organization and consultants will work together to identify the issues and then design solutions. This cycle will have alumni partner with SunCulture - an organization that provides life-changing technology for smallholder farmers. Learn more here: www.sunculture.com.
This cycle will run from May 7 2022 to June 25, 2022 wherein consultants will collaborate with the organization and the team through weekly sessions and workshops as well as have an opportunity to work independently during the rest of the week.
