Grabbing a meal before a 14-hour flight!

We’re a group of Harvard College students who travel the globe together, bringing Innovation Challenges to high school students centered around sustainability, education, and technology. As a growing student organization, we offer the environment of a startup, where each member gets to directly influence the mission of the club and the content of our conferences. Explore what we've accomplished already on our website!

This year, we are travelling to Dubai and India, and we are looking for you to join our team! All travel expenses and meals are covered.

Dubai, UAE
(Spring Break)

Bangalore, India
(Mid-July to Early-August)

Who are we looking for?

We are looking for proactive and motivated students who can not only work well in a team setting, but also work independently to improve the quality of the organization. Members should expect to contribute 1 - 2 hours of work per week, picking up more as the conference dates approach.

what's in it for you?

  • All-expenses paid international trips to conferences around the world. Travel, accommodation, food, and all activities covered. (Dubai Activities: 5* Resort Trip, Desert Safari, Dinner at the Burj, and more!)

  • Freedom to help develop international conferences as how you see fit

  • Experience in high-level logistics planning

  • Quick opportunities to a board position — our president is a sophomore!

  • Real world experience on your resume

  • Most importantly, help students around the world to make a true difference

    With the freedom of a more startup-like environment, you'll have the opportunity to influence and contribute to multiple aspects of our conference, including content development, professional outreach/communication, marketing, multimedia, and of course, running the conference itself.
