This program offered me true insight into the imperfectly frustrating and beautiful work that is real, sustainable impact and I come away inspired and hungry.

I loved hearing the client express appreciation for how quickly we integrated ourselves into our work and understood/delivered on the business case at hand. This truly shows that the team prepared and scoped appropriately to deliver an impactful and sustainable recommendation.

Our relationship with Social Entrepreneur Corps is now nearly five years old, and we value it very much. Our belief in DukeEngage is that student transformation comes when they are fully immersed in an issue and community. The Social Entrepreneur Corps model achieves this as well as any program I know. Through intensive  language instruction, homestays and student involvement in the MicroConsignment Model, their programs have had a huge impact on our students and the communities they serve.

-Eric Mlyn, Executive Director DukeEngage

Social Entrepreneur Corps is one of those rare experiences that give you leadership, entrepreneurship and international development opportunities all into one. There are a lot of programs out there where you can be a casual observer, but here you go down and get the training that you need to work on real international development projects that are having an impact every day.

– Neil Blumenthal, Co-Founder, Warby Parker
