Program

In the NGO Track, professionals donate their professional skills to assist nonprofit organizations. This provides a tangible, high-impact way of volunteering, combined with individual coaching sessions that simultaneously foster personal and professional growth.

 

We offer two types of projects, so whether you’re looking for a part-time project, to go alongside your regular job, or a full-time NGO opportunity – we’ve got you covered!

Leadership comes in all shapes and sizes. That’s why our Future Leaders Track hones in on your employee’s natural gifts, their particular way of being in the world, the unique value they bring to the table. We offer a growth process towards an authentic leadership style in four different areas.

Sweet Spot's unique concept: Learning in a different environment than usual.

By placing yourself in a completely different environment for an intensive period, you give yourself the opportunity to learn, to experiment, and, most importantly, to grow.

 

Unique about our NGO Track is that we provide personal coaching to each participant. Through this coaching, you will set personal goals, learn how to overcome cultural differences, and receive guidance on how to better cope with difficult situations.
