AFD Montreal

Unlock your full potential. Have social impact.

AFD Montreal is looking for you!

Are you striving to have social impact and make a real difference in the world?

As a part of AFD you will represent the Canadian part of an international community which is active in Belgium, Netherlands, South-Africa. All connected on a single platform the AFD family has the mission to have a real and tangible social impact through social entrepreneurship.

Be trained in social entrepreneurship and join the multidisciplinary board if you are an ambitious, motivated student with strong learning capacities. The environment you will join is challenging as the team will require close team work solving challenges on a wide spectrum. From negotiating deals with business partners to collaborating with universities and creating high potential projects for the coming year.

The project consists out of two phases, starting with a preparation phase during a full academic year to gather objective information via experts, analyse the project and prepare the implementation. Afterwards, during the implementation phase you and your team go to your respective project country for 6 to 8 weeks to carry out your project in reality. The ultimate goal of each project is to realize durable and meaningful social impact.
