The Christina Noble social enterprise programme is a programme designed to raise money for the Christina Noble foundation by empowering third level students to create and execute their own fundraising projects. The mission is to raise €100,000 for the Christina Noble Foundation over 60 days with the help of 100 third level students.
Each of the 100 chosen students are targeted with raising €1,000 during the 60 day period by organising and hosting an event, or a series of events.
Students are required to apply for the programme via the “Social Enterprise Programme” website landing page, and are selected based on a specific set of criteria. The selected students are then matched with a professional mentor who will support them throughout their fundraising projects, and who will be able to advise them on their future career and CV techniques.
Students will develop professional skills such as project management, networking and communication skills, and they will gain practical experience that will help them gain access to jobs in their future chosen careers.
