Entrepreneurship and Empowerment in South Africa (EESA)

Filed under Opportunities, Study Abroad on January 16, 2017.

The EESA program is a life-changing experience, where students help historically disadvantaged entrepreneurs in the townships around Cape Town, South Africa. The key requirements for EESA are a strong work ethic, emotional maturity, creative problem-solving ability and a desire to make a difference. Coached by three faculty members, American students work with South African students on consulting teams assisting small businesses over a six week period to help make ventures sustainable. The ventures range from catering and arts and crafts businesses to community newspapers and small construction companies. EESA is a great experience to add to your résumé as well as a once in a lifetime opportunity. Open to all UF Students.
