Consulting

Amizade recognizes that we alone cannot meet our bold mission.

As such, we’ve chosen to be as open-source of an organization as possible. It’s why we’ve catalyzed, but not owned, such sector changing concepts as Fair Trade Learning and The Global Switchboard. We offer our skills and time as consultants to other mission-driven organizations so that our innovative ideas and expertise in global service-learning, solidarity building, experiential education, and socially active and responsible educational travel can be shared far and wide.

WORKSHOPS & TRAINING

Over the last two decades, Amizade has led hundreds of workshops and training on responsible global service-learning, facilitated reflection, innovative approaches to health, safety, and security, Fair Trade Learning, faculty preparation for abroad programming, community partnerships and solidarity building, and global engagement preparation and planning. Contact us now to learn more.

RETREATS & SUMMITS

Amizade loves organizing retreats and summits with its partners. There are few ways to become better equipped to lead transformative global engagement programs than to experience a small version yourself. We can lead intimate and customizable retreats with your group at one of our community partner sites, at your institution, or at our office in Pittsburgh.

INSTITUTIONAL PLANNING

Amizade can assist with many elements of planning for new global initiatives, mission alignment, ethical partnership integration, and global service-learning curriculum development. Contact us now to learn more.

CORPORATE VOLUNTEERING

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is a concept which acknowledges a company’s role in and ability to foster sustainable economic development and positive social impact through both their local and global communities. CSR can be practiced through environmental efforts, philanthropy, ethical labor practices, and volunteerism.
