The Adelaide branch of 180 Degrees Consulting (180DC)—officially founded in 2017—is committed to providing high quality consulting services for non-profits and socially conscious organisations in the Adelaide community.
What do we do?
We carefully select the world’s top university talent, provide them with professional training and mentoring, and then match them with non-profits that have applied for assistance based on their expertise, interests, and abilities. They then work as volunteers in teams to develop in-depth solutions to the challenges the non-profits face. This is mutually beneficial. Our consultants develop transferable skills, engage in experimental learning, become engaged citizens, improve their entrepreneurial abilities, and develop as leaders. Non-profits receive assistance they otherwise couldn’t afford.
Who do we look for?
We look for highly motivated and achieving students (both undergraduate and postgraduate) from all faculties at The University of Adelaide who:
- Show interest in creating a positive social impact for the community
- Present themselves in a professional manner
- Demonstrate a high level of communication skills and work well within a team
What does a typical project look like?
