    Our Impact Teams combine learning and networking alongside an in-the-field Experteering experience. In this 3-month program, you'll gain real experience in social entrepreneurship, build an international network, and develop your skills — ​all while making the world a better place.

  • Cohort-Based

    Build a Global Network

    Once accepted, you will join a community of inspiring and motivated professionals from around the world. While you will each engage in your own Experteering experience, you will be working on these projects at the same time as other cohort members so you can support each other and grow together along the way.

    Learn About Human Centered Design & Social Entrepreneurship

    While Developing Real Skills

    Start your Impact Team experience with a live, half-day virtual training with your team members. After the training is finished, you'll join your cohort on an online community to continue discussing key concepts and how to apply them during your individualized Experteering experience.

    Cultural Agility & Leadership Development

    To Help You Work More Effectively with Other Cultures and Prepare for Global Leadership

    Through our partnership with Aperian Global®, Impact Team members will have access to GlobeSmart®, an online resource designed to help you become more effective in a cross-cultural work environment. You’ll learn about your own unique work-style, identify potential challenges between styles most often found in the country you're Experteering in, and receive advice and concrete strategies to pave the way for success.

    Identify Your Purpose Patterns

    For Long-term Career Satisfaction and Impact

    Through our strategic partnership with Imperative, each Impact Team member will have their Individual Purpose Diagnostic taken and assessed for them - a tool only reserved for qualified companies and teams. The findings will be used to pick an Experteering project that aligns with your passions and goals.

    Personal Capstone Project

    To Help You Standout

    After your field experience, you’ll highlight the impact you made and skills you gained in a capstone presentation. Our special guides and your fellow cohort members will help you turn it into something that can be featured on your resume and LinkedIn profile.

    Career and Resume Guidance

MovingWorlds only provides the contact information to enable a professional and educational exchange rather like a classified listing and is NOT a travel agency or organized exchange program. All arrangements are entirely between the host and the Experteer. All Experteers must obtain, on their own initiative, the relevant visa for the country they are travelling to. All questions regarding travel and visas (working, Experteering, or otherwise) should be put to the relevant embassy in the home country before travelling. MovingWorlds does not endorse listed organizations, and Experteers are not agents of MovingWorlds.
