Glocal students follow a number of professional tracks after finishing the program. Some alumni find positions with organizations working in the developing world, while others stay in their home countries to pursue working with marginalized communities closer to home. A few of our students have developed projects out of their own initiative and the initiative of communities with whom they work. Such projects include a women’s cooperative in Majuli, India, civics training in Israel, and work with communities supporting orphans and vulnerable children in Kenya.
Our alumni do not always choose to pursue a career in the field of development, and may often find rewarding careers in the private sector. Some Glocal graduates have worked in corporate social responsibility, private sector consulting, as well as in social business and start-ups.
While Glocal places focus on the developing world, many of the theories and skills students develop during the studies can be applied to working with marginalized communities in Israel or one’s home country.
