Student Buddies

We organize quality education for young leaders worldwide through various programs. Participants usually travel for the period of the course to the country where education is taking place. They learn from the tutor, visit the organizations and receive vast professional experience. However, this experience is not exhaustive if they do not have the possibility to meet local people and communicate with them in an informal environment. And that is why we invite Student Buddies to join the program!

If you live in the city where our course takes place – to join us as a Student Buddy! At the moment we have the programs in Amsterdam, the Hague, Vienna, and Moscow. The Buddies are invited to join the program and meet participants.

The forms of participation can be different

You can choose how to communicate with our participants:

  • You can meet participants and offer them an informal walk in the city
  • You can join the course and hold the seminar about your country/city/culture
