For those wanting to delve into social entrepreneurship, the Villgro fellowship may be just the opportunity. In a year-long program, Villgro fellows engage in field work ranging from leadership training to expanding their operational skills.
The fellowship is geared toward individuals who are looking for a way to bring social innovation back into their work. It asks fellows to apply their skills where they are needed to transform the lives of the poor.
Leadership Development programs are designed for professionals and made up of classroom sessions, forums, field trips and mentoring relationshops with a social entrepreneur. Fellows also blog on their experiences, so reading their reflections can be a good way of gauging if this is a good fit for you.
