Coaching and enabling young people to build social enterprises in emerging economies
Our student focus areas
To ensure our student programmes provide you the highest-quality immersion in social enterprise and international development, we focus on three key aspects of your IDEAS Globally experience, making it hands-on, continually exciting and empowering.
We believe people develop fastest when they are immersed in doing, so we provide you with experience of a full range of business divisions.
All of our members receive crucial skills training in business development, and are accredited for successfully completing this process.
Throughout your time with IDEAS Globally, we ensure you are supported weekly by one of our trained mentors.

CREST Summer Programme
Our CREST (‘Charity Entrepreneurship for Students’) summer programme is open globally to students aged 16-30, who are searching for a C.V.-enhancing immersion and deep-dive into international development and social enterprise.
Specialised coaching sessions
CREST students receive accreditation from IDEAS Globally for their experience being coached through the summer programme. As an organisation with a broad range of supporters including University College London, Ernst & Young, and Oxfam, our programme participants also attain vital exposure to the job sector.
Industry exposure through conferencing
Through a two-day conference with industry change-makers and young leaders under 30 years old, we provide an interface for CREST participants to learn from a range of social impact and corporate institutions, first hand.
C.V. growth & experience for your future
Our aim is to provide students with the wide range of practical business and socially-entrepreneurial experience you need, in order to launch your own enterprise in a developing country. As such, our programme is transformative to your C.V.
