From Kate Weiner ’15:
Jumpstart Academy is an organization that seeks to educate, equip, and empower Nigerian youths through a two-year Leadership and Entrepreneurship program. This program melds community service learning with business opportunities in order to cultivate a new generation of ethical entrepreneurs.
Although based in Ibadan, Nigeria, Jumpstart is seeking interns at Wesleyan for the spring semester. Interns will work directly with Kate Weiner ’15, Jumpstart’s Creative Development Intern, to learn first-hand about building social enterprises through research, grant writing, fundraising, and community outreach opportunities.
