Streetwize Training partners

Streetwize has put together a team of atypical – though highly professional – trainers, facilitators and consultants. They have a wide range of experience working with different target groups in business: from executives, promising new talent, to employees on the work floor. They also share a fascination for the vibes and inspiration of the street culture. All participate in Mobile School projects and have international experience in creating and delivering learning processes with street kids and youth. The unique combination of business and street experience results in a team of change makers that develops sustainable processes for business and society.

Streetwize trainers, as real experience experts, provide a scientific foundation to the project: they help you accomplish your personal learning goals and transfer these to your professional work.

Streetwize Experts

Streetwize experts are members of the Mobile School target group. All have an impressive story of surviving in the streets in the context of exclusion and poverty. Even more impressive is the story of how they managed to win the battles and how – in the process – they realised personal growth and progress. They are the real Streetwize, our inspiration and our motivation.

They inspire the Streetwize trainees with their video documentaries. They even get personally involved in specific programmes and expeditions. All know that 100% of the Streetwize profits flow back to the streets through the Mobile School projects. The fact that they are generating revenue to support fellows on the streets empowers them to always do more. All also share in the profits: a personal project that is financed. These projects vary from investing in training and studies to investment in their personal business. All receive personal follow up and coaching from the Streetwize trainers.
