Social Entrepreneur Corps (SE Corps) provides service-learning internships to students from around the world, in which they serve as community consultants for our sister organzations Community Empowerment Solutions (CE Solutions) and Soluciones Comunitarias (SolCom).

Community Enterprise Solutions (CE Solutions) is an award-winning nonprofit organization that was established with the goal of empowering businesses and educating entrepreneurs to make a difference in their communities. CE Solutions identifies, trains, equips, and supports individuals and organizations to provide sustainable solutions that address long-standing rural, economic, health, and educational programs. We create access to essential products and services for communities, individuals, organizations, and small businesses throughout rural regions of Latin America.

CE Solutions co-founder and CEO, Greg Van Kirk is a two-time winner of the Ashoka Globalizer Award (2014, 2010), the Schwab Foundation "2012 Social Entrepreneur of the Year for Latin America," the Ashoka Siemens SBDG (2010), and the Ashoka Lemelson Fellow (2008).

Social Entrepreneur Corps works alongside Soluciones Comunitarias, facilitating projects that further develop empowerment in the communities as well as partnerships with other local organizations and initiatives that create social impact. Social Entrepreneur Corps has long worked with groups of undergraduate university students, facilitating eight week and four week programs working alongside Soluciones Comunitarias in the field; more recently, we have been partnering with professionals such as Deloitte and Warby Parker for shorter immersion consulting experiences. Overall, we project over 100 program participants to visit Guatemala in 2016, in different programs of one week, two week, four week, or eight week duration.

We consider Social Entrepreneur Corps to be much more than a volunteer placement organization; SE Corps is committed to providing high-quality consulting and capacity building for the local organizations that we partner with, as well as an enriching educational field experience for program participants. Full-time, year-round staff working with Soluciones Comunitarias and Social Entrepreneur Corps are embedded in the field sites that Social Entrepreneur Corps interns visit, building local relationships and setting up the foundation for projects and programs to harness the strengths and capabilities of SE Corps to respond to real community needs.
