Looking for Social Innovators to Mentor/Coach IST Students
IST is organising a team of high school students to participate in the Diamond Challenge through the University of Delaware. The Diamond Challenge is an international competition where student teams develop social innovations that can lead to income generation. This learning experience is for students who are interested in entrepreneurship, development, design and innovation. Students will be working throughout semester 1 to develop a innovative solution to a problem facing individuals here in Tanzania. We are looking for local social innovators/entrepreneurs who can come speak to the students and serve as mentors. The mentors will work with faculty members to support
