Question 1 / 6

Who do you think should take responsibility for global issues?

The charity model is well intentioned, yet outdated. Charities rely completely on funding and the current state of the global economy and the ever fluctuating interest of the media and society.

Governments are dependant on civil and international policy and limited by the cycle of term. While Governments play an integral role in development and addressing social issues, they are only part of the solution.

Business encourages sustainability, strengthens the economy, provides employment, and a secure business model can be designed and tailored to suit the needs of a complex and constantly evolving global community. A business that has a positive social impact is a social business.

Definitely, the world and its inhabitants are complex and fascinating. It’s the role of the many arms of control we have created to monitor, change, and address social issues. Learn how social business is a powerful tool to create long term, financially stable, and positive impact on a global scale through Project Everest.

Not sure if we agree with this.

Question 2 / 6

Do you think enough is being done to solve global issues?

  • Yes
  • No

Question 2 / 6

Do you think enough is being done to solve global issues?

Unfortunately, data indicates that we are not doing enough. The United Nations Millennium Development Goals were developed by the global community, who agreed to ensure their eradication by 2015. Unfortunately, not all of those goals have been satisfied.

We agree. There have been huge advances in establishing peace and a healthy global economy by focusing on major issues like; poverty, children’s health, empowerment of women and girls, sustainable environment, disease, and development - we believe there is a lot to do and to achieve this, we need a sustainable and scalable model.

Question 3 / 6

Which do you value the most in a career?

  • High paying role
  • Career with purpose
  • Both

Question 3 / 6

Which do you value the most in a career?

We recognise the competitiveness of today's society. Entry level positions expect applicants to have a Bachelor's Degree. You are now required to define yourself with Postgraduate, extensive internship experience, international travel and exposure, multilinguality, an appropriate online presence, networking skills, soft skills and/or the experiences to illustrate that. We will link you with influential Leaders, and provide the opportunity to gain precisely the kind of attributes and skills you need to succeed.

While it’s important to survive, living is more than just surviving and as you prepare to spend the next 40 years in an industry - it makes sense to desire a role that has purpose. To find a career with purpose you need to have experiences that will help you define your passion. To find a role with impact, focus on the most pressing global issues, choose a method for working on them - such as social business, and ensure you surround yourself with people who can support you into that role. We will link you with influential Leaders, and provide the opportunity to gain precisely the kind of experience, skills, and tools you need to succeed.

We agree. We’re out to prove that it is possible to be financially secure and have a career with purpose. Through Project Everest you will be exposed to a growing network of likeminded and purpose driven individuals.

  • No

Question 4 / 6

Do you want to be a global citizen?

Our Projects run across multiple countries, offering varied focuses to maximise our global impact. We facilitate international movement across Australia, Singapore, Fiji, Uganda, East Timor, and Cambodia - that’s just in the past 12 months. The world is undeniably interconnected, with ease of international travel, the internet and the proliferation of social media. Issues are no longer separated by political borders. Our populations are now global - which means the solutions to issues within that sphere need to be global.

We have some shocking news. The world is undeniably interconnected, with ease of international travel, the internet and the proliferation of social media. Issues are no longer separated by political borders; the climate, conflict, poverty, economy and populations are global - which means the solutions to issues within that sphere need to be global.

Question 5 / 6

Do you feel you have the skills or resources to contribute to global issues/to be a global citizen?

  • Yes
  • No

Question 5 / 6

Do you feel you have the skills or resources to contribute to global issues/to be a global citizen?

Sensational. There are two types of participants, there are Trekkers who will gain from this transformative experience, then there are Trekkers who are motivated, intelligent, proactive and aware. We need both types of participants to ensure we are able to create the impact we aim for.

Leadership is something you learn; and we are an organisation that builds leaders. The skills and resources you need to contribute to solving global issues are elements we commit to providing our Trekkers. Personal development is experience with support and guidance.

Going on project was one of the best decisions I've ever made.That one short month developed my personal and professional capabilities more than what I thought was possible. The Project Everest team is made up of incredibly passionate people looking to make a difference, and being able to work next to them is an enriching experience by itself. I would highly recommend Everest to anyone looking to push themselves and make a difference.

My month in Fiji with Project Everest has been challenging but worthwhile and rewarding. I was able to deepen my knowledge of fuel sources as well as improve on my confidence and communication skills and also had the change to improve my leadership skills. I worked in a diverse team from a range of backgrounds that I wouldn’t have worked with in any other context and through this learnt more about myself. I really enjoyed being a trekker with a company that focuses on sustainability and long term achievements. I found that Project Everest took impact assessments serious to ensure that we mitigate any potential negative impacts and cultural awareness and sensitivity played a huge role in all our work. Would highly recommended getting involved

If you want to truly make a difference in the world this is the opportunity for you. I went on the Fiji Fuel Assessment with no prior knowledge about fuel, but was able to learn so much from visiting villages. In turn, I was able to contribute to the research and building of ideas that will help Project Everest provide socially beneficial services and products for those in the developing world that need it. Would recommend this to anyone! Such an eye opening experience, and with a great bunch of people.

My experience with Project Everest so far has been nothing short of amazing. Surrounding yourself with like-minded budding entrepreneurs driving social change motivates you to want to get involved and see what you're capable of doing both on your own and with others. I was fortunate enough to be involved with the Cambodia FarmEd food security project which gave me the opportunity to apply my agricultural and business knowledge to the venture. Having the opportunity to immerse yourself in another culture not only improves your cultural literacy and appreciation, but it develops a side in you that wants to venture on towards social change alongside your current team, the previous tram and the future team. All this, of course, stems from the leadership program Project Everest implements to ensure the high quality and standards are consistently applied across all projects to develops leaders in social business. For me, this is key for making sustainable solutions and I'm so keen for the times and adventures that lies ahead

Going on project with Project Everest has been one of the best personal/professional development experiences I have had. I have left this venture with experiences and new skills which I will take forward into my personal and professional life going forward which I know will make me more successful in my career. I appreciate everything PE did to make the trip fun, comfortable and enjoyable and they made me feel supported and engaged the entire time. Could not recommend enough!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Will this get in the way of my studies? I’m so busy and want to do well at Uni.

This internship happens outside your studies- period. Alex has been involved with Project Everest for just over 12 months now, on 5 projects across 3 countries whilst smashing his final years of an Engineering degree…and getting the grades.

“I started as a Trekker in the same position as you. Through love of this organisation and desire to build my leadership skills to those around me, I have been given opportunities to be responsible for up to 45 people in Timor-Leste… all in 12 months!” – Alex Piatek

How much does it cost? I can’t afford to invest in an opportunity like this.

The Project fee is $2820. This opportunity with Project Everest is able to be financed like the rest of your degree (as long as you fit some basic criteria), has a greater impact on the skills employers actually look for. Kai never thought he could do something like this but it was hidden within his bachelor degree program.

“I had no idea at the start that this was completely in my reach through my University. Through my ongoing involvement for the last 15 months it is insane how financially accessible it has been for me.” – Kai Faulkner

 

Is this related to my tech, engineering, science, business studies, etc degree?

If you are reading this you must have missed the video above||. These are the skills that pay the bills, and you apply what you have been learning at Uni. Commerce students need engineers to make products, engineers need commerce students to build the business around it. Real life technology application is at the centerpiece of everything we do thus science, computing etc- we need them all to create quality teams.

Just like a start-up you need technical and commercial knowledge. Ella couldn’t see how the developing world is relevant to Science.

“I don’t want to be a school teacher post my degree. Now I can see how my Science degree has application to the real world.”
