Project Maestro

What we do:

Think about the first time someone recognized in you a spark, a talent you hadn’t yet seen in yourself. Remember the way your heart soared when you felt the power of what you could do and be. At Street Business School (SBS) we are honored to help people living in poverty experience that feeling by turning their spark into a fire of purpose through our entrepreneurial training program. We are a global organization with a goal of reaching a million people by 2027.


We are proud of our successes! With our help:

·       SBS graduates have gone from living on $1.35 a day on average, to $4.19 a day two years later

·       89% of SBS graduates have at least 1 business two years after they graduate


Why you’ll feel good about working for Street Business School

·       You’ll be challenged, you’ll be inspired, and you’ll be proud to see your spark igniting change around the world

·       You’ll have plenty of opportunity to do cool and meaningful work

·       By supporting the global expansion of our Street Business School, your work will directly enable one million people to lift their families out of poverty

·       You’ll be surrounded and inspired by other employees with passion, commitment, and drive. We love to help people reach their full potential.

·       We support people to solve their own problems creating dignity, ownership and self-sufficiency

·       Increasing income not only reduces poverty, but it also spurs investment in children, creates greater self-esteem, increases bargaining power, and reduces domestic violence

·       You’ll have great time off benefits, including a paid, organization-wide closure over the holidays

Do you get happy feet when you hear that a project is yours to own? Are you the organizer of every organization?

If you love Kaizen, are fun to hang with, are organized, diagnostic, an independent thinker but a team player, and are happy to pitch in with any project just for the asking, and… are looking to spend some time with Director-level positions (versus avoiding
