About Emzingo U

Emzingo U is a social enterprise and Certified B Corp that aims to train the next generation of leaders to be more responsible, empathetic, self-aware, and culturally sensitive to the world around them and the problems within it. We design amazing experiences that engage these future leaders in social impact consulting projects and workshops to help nonprofits and social enterprises overcome key strategic challenges. In doing so, we aim to empower and strengthen the organizations and communities in which we work while our participants equally learn from and assist these organizations using the skills they have attained through their studies, their careers, and Emzingo design and strength building workshops.
Through long and short engagements, in Peru or South Africa, we hope to expose participants to the world of social entrepreneurship and innovation and help them find their place within it. In doing so we want to inspire our participants to find purpose in the careers, prepare them for an increasingly global world, and help connect the private and public sectors in an effort to create lasting, positive change. Our participants learn what it means to create positive impact and how to reproduce it once their time with us is done. We believe our experiences create a long-lasting change and transformative experience for the participants, empowering them to become responsible leaders.
