Future Leaders Program

A flagship scholarship project offered by 180 Degrees Consulting

We are thrilled to announce The Future Leaders Program, a scholarship project offered by 180 Degrees Consulting. 18 selected applicants from our university branches will have the chance to participate in a 9-month scheme tailored to accelerate their careers and become social impact leaders!
The program will have three stages:

1. Leadership Academy

Aim: Build Confidence and Compassion to enhance your leadership skills

The 18 selected candidates will undergo a 3 month course focused on building positive leadership behaviour and habits with Potentialife. Through a combination of neuroscience, psychology, and technology, Potentialife empowers leaders to enhance their skills, drive organisational performance, and achieve sustainable growth! See more about our partnership with Potentialife here. With only a 2 hour weekly commitment, online discussions and behavioural experiments will be held to help shape participants into influential leaders committed to driving change.

2. Social Impact Academy

Aim: Deepen your understanding of critical social challenges through self-reflection and mentorship

Participants will be assigned a mentor tailored to their interest to help them identify areas where they aspire to make a difference in their future professional endeavors. This stage is a moment for self-discovery and alignment of personal passion with societal needs.

As a part of this module, selected finalists will be able to learn about the process behind creating Forte, an education financing non-profit. They will have a chance to learn about this transformative initiative from Nat Ware, CEO of Forte and Founder of 180 Degrees applying the knowledge to become better social impact entrepreneurs. See more about the partnership with Forte here.

Finalists will be mentored by a professional within the merit-based talent network, NOVA. The mentor will be tailored to their career goals and personal aspirations. Participants will also be nominated to take part in NOVA’s selection process and the winners, if selected, will have exclusive access to all the benefits NOVA offers.

3. Entrepreneurship Academy

Aim: Enhance your ability and readiness to develop, organize and create social impact initiatives

A global-in person meeting will be organized to bring together all participants and create a professional network. The entrepreneurship academy marks the final phase, combining learning and application to bridge participants’ aspirations with real-world impact. The entrepreneurship academy will guide participants in beginning their own social impact journey with a real, tangible project plan to be presented at the meeting.
