Welcome to GPS UNIVERSITY, your alternative to the traditional university/college experience.
With our team of world-class mentors and our emphasis on a well-balanced curriculum covering mind, body, and soul, we facilitate an experiential global education for aspiring social entrepreneurs. We invite youth aged 18-24 to discover their purpose-driven passion, and mentor them to build a business that will help answering some of the world’s biggest challenges. We are here for you, and we are here WITH you.
In GPS University, you are not a student. You’re a MOVER. You are a part of a GLOBAL MOVEMENT. You are here to leave your mark in the WORLD.
We believe that it’s about time for an educational model that equally focuses on mind, body, and soul training–while catering to young people who are seeking their purpose and passion to start a social business. With student loan debt topping $1 trillion dollars, and more Millennials than ever eager to start a business, why not ‘find your passion and purpose’ first, before even going to university/college?
In GPS University, we welcome confusion, questioning, and the deep desire to want to know why you’re here. This is what we’d like you to think about, though: imagine how cool it would be to go into university/college, equipped with a detailed plan and a burning desire to launch your own social business–with the world’s best social entrepreneurs as your mentors?
LEARN. LAUGH. LIVE. LOVE. LEAP.
Don’t you think that’s how learning (and life in general) should look like?
As you enroll to GPS University, you’ll be working in close contact with us for one full month–not only to build and launch your own social business, but also to have the right mindset and attitude to become a social entrepreneur. You’ll be exposed to various resources (articles, discussions, talks, interviews, and frameworks); and learn first-hand from some of the world’s most inspiring social entrepreneurs who will share not only their wisdom, but also their mistakes (hey, they used to be confused when they were your age, too!).
Oh, and we’ll definitely have our cozy chat over coffee. Dance together. Or sing some stupid songs. Go out to the beach or run barefooted on a hill. Learn how to fall in love completely. Get upon that stage and tell that joke you have always wanted to tell…
