180 Degrees is a highly ambitious organization. We want to grow so that we can help more non-profits and social enterprises to achieve their full potential, and so we can train more university students to become great social impact leaders! There is a massive need for the services that 180 Degrees provides.

We want you to help us expand our impact! If you are based at a university where there is not currently a 180 Degrees branch, we encourage you to consider applying to start a branch. We’re looking for talented, entrepreneurial, hard-working and committed people with the right motivation! 

Starting a branch is a very competitive process as we want to maintain high quality. We want to ensure all branch founders are exceptionally talented, very committed, and have the right motivation. Less than 15% of applications to start a 180 Degrees branch are ultimately approved. For those considering applying, it is important to know that while starting a branch is exceptionally rewarding it is also a significant time commitment. We expect at least 10-15 hours per week dedicated to 180 Degrees. The good news is that if you are approved to start a branch, we’ll support you every step of the way. You will have access to our extensive consulting and marketing resources, be trained in our proven processes, have access to IT support, get advice on how to best run a branch, be invited to our leadership summits, and be able to use our custom built consulting management platform that we call Compass. You will also be a part of the exciting, innovative and growing 180 Degrees global community.

The first step in the process is to express interest by filling in the following form. If we are impressed by your application, we will be in contact with you regarding next steps, which generally involves a video-conference interview. You will receive a decision on your application within 2 weeks.
