Students, parents, friends and family- welcome to the Social Entrepreneurship Corps Blog (SECorps)!

The purpose of this website is to create an interface in which future interns, and others interested in SECorps can find useful information in preparation for Social Entrepreneurship Corps.

Check out POST updates under the “HOME” tab!

Updates will be made on MAY 11th and May 18th!

There is much to look forward to in SECorps.  We welcome you and want to create a means of communication and learning forum, even before you hit the ground running.   We encourage all of our student interns to be proactive, engaging and passionate.  Understanding the context in which you will be engaged in will help you make the most impact out of your SECorps experience.   Articles will be posted periodically under the following categories:

  1. Country Information- find out more about the history, culture, and politics of the country you will be visiting
  2. Logistics- the A to Z’s on what to pack, where to exchange money, and tips for traveling abroad
  3. Key Readings- Divided into two sections- “development overview” and “in-depth perspectives”, this category includes articles and media materials regarding concepts of social entrepreneurship and MicroConsignment
  4. The Work- find out more about what CE Solutions does and various programs you will participate in

As mentioned, 2 updates will be made (May 11th and May 18th) before you leave for your SECorps experience.  To be notified automatically, click on the “sign up” button to the right to receive emails when the website changes.

Our goal is to provide an opportunity for students to get involved, learn, and understand the context for SECorps and the experience they will encounter.  Thank you for your participation!  We look forward to your arrival!  In the meantime, check out the postings each week, and feel free to contact us with any questions you may have:
