PRIME MOVERS in three steps

It consists of 3 E's: Education, Engagement and Employment

We educate you in changemaker skills

We teach you systems thinking in order to navigate complex problems, social innovation to create solutions, and social entrepreneurship skills to take action. Within the two-year* program, you attend workshops ranging from SEO (search engine optimisation) and Growth Hacking, to emotional intelligence and time management and and everything in between.

*completion of the entire program is not compulsory

You engage in impactful initiatives

We have various initiatives in different areas where you will apply your learnings right away. Want to help start social startups? Find solutions to societal challenges? Teach children about sustainability, gender equality or challenges that come with digitalisation? You can choose to work on social entrepreneurship, social innovation or social education throughout the program.

As an alumni, you are employed in doing what you love

Going after your passion does not have to stop at volunteering. After you complete the PRIME MOVERS program, you can either apply to be employed in one of our ventures, or transition into purposeful careers in different organizations we work with.
