Millennium Fellowship Project: 180 Degrees Cambridge
180 Degrees Consulting Cambridge aims to provide free, high-quality student consulting to socially conscious organisations that may not be able to afford it otherwise. We do this by recruiting student consultants to tackle social issues. By training students in areas of non-profit management, social impact measurement and ethical decision making, we educate the future generation on issues commonly tackled in the social area. The period of August 2020 to December 2020 will be used in preparation of consultation projects starting in early 2021. Some goals we hope to achieve in this time include:
- Sourcing at least 7 projects with socially conscious organisations and planning project briefs for each
-Organising a fresher's fair event
-Co-ordinating a consultation recruitment initiative that leads to at least 90 student applications
