Global Volunteer is a cross-cultural experience for youth who want to gain personal development and leave an impact on the world. UPreneur is a project based on SDG #8, decent work and economic growth. This project aims to improve the condition of SMEs in Semarang, especially those in fashion and crafts cluster. Our main activity is that we will go to various SMEs around Semarang, do a research of what they lack (e.g. marketing, branding, or financial management), and help them improve their SMEs in those aspects first-hand. They will also do activities like business competition, entrepreneur workshop and festival, and school roadshows to high schools in Semarang to increase the knowledge of people all over Semarang about the importance of having an entrepreneurial mindset.
Engage with all kinds of people towards achieving a purpose bigger than yourself. It’s how you can empower others.
Volunteering abroad isn’t easy, but surpassing challenges is what makes it worth it. You learn how to be solution-oriented.
Making your contribution and seeing your impact in real-time will show you that you can indeed make a difference the world. Become that world citizen that’s needed more than ever.
Going beyond what you know opens up new worlds for you. Find your values, explore your passions, and become more self-aware.
