“The lessons students are learning on Nourish Projects are things it took me years of professional experience to learn.” – Dennis Whittle, CEO of Global Giving
Nourish International equips students with the skills and experiences needed to become agents of social change. The experience of running businesses on their campus, selecting a project, partnering with a community to implement it, and assessing the outcome causes students to take ownership of the world they live in.
The intense challenges students face during this process allow them to put their leadership, communication, and critical thinking skills into practice. At the same time, they gain a first-hand understanding of the problems caused by global poverty and the most effective ways to solve them, giving them the foundation they need to be an informed global citizen.
In addition to having a global impact, Nourish students develop friendships with like-minded peers who inspire and support them as they pursue social change for the rest of their lives.

Allie Gates, Ventures Director and Project Team Member, UCLA 2010
Allie’s favorite part about Nourish: “The freedom to experiment and think outside the box! Nourish does not impose a one-size-fits-all approach to individual chapters, and it allows students to really develop ventures that cater to the particular environment on campus and in their city. In the same vein, the projects we execute are truly collaborations between chapters and partner organizations, which allows for growth on both ends.” Learn more about her experience with Nourish here.
