EWB launched the Virtual Talent xChange (VTX) to facilitate matching bright, professional talent with the needs of our social venture partners in Sub-Saharan Africa.
Through this initiative, seasoned professionals and teams of university volunteers from all over the world volunteer their skills, virtually from the comfort of their homes, to support the sustainability and growth of early-stage initiatives that better the lives of hundreds of thousands of people facing poverty and inequity.
Our venture partners in sub-Saharan Africa have diverse talent needs to support their journey:
Business development – growth strategy development, financial analysis, team management, etc.
Web and Software Development – coding and development, UI/UX design
Monitoring & Evaluation – evaluation strategy development, data analysis
Digital Marketing – marketing strategy development, website development, social media strategy and engagement, etc.
Communication & Fundraising – improving pitch decks, fundraising strategy development, copy editing and review
Engineering and technical disciplines – structural reviews, software engineering
Volunteering through the Virtual Talent xChange not only supports social ventures scale their impact in their own communities, but also allows our volunteers to hone their professional and technical expertise; train or support the professional capacities of their counterparts across the Atlantic; build management and coaching skills; and develop long-lasting interpersonal and intercultural connections through cross-continental collaboration.
