Start a Branch. Make an Impact.
Why starting a GRC branch is a great opportunity
Global Research and Consulting high-school branches function as independent clubs, while still having access to GRC materials, best-practices as well as mentorship from college students/alumni at universities such as but not limited to the University of Pennsylvania, Harvard, Columbia, LSE, LBS and Northwestern (Kellogg). As a member of GRC, you become part of a powerful and growing network of current students and alumni. GRC alums have gone on to work at the United Nations, Gates Foundation and various social impact non-profits. Alums have also gone on to work at global management consulting firms such as McKinsey, BCG, and Bain as well as in the financial services industry at firms such as Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley, Bain Capital, and Point72.
How GRC High-School branches make an impact
As the Founder and President of a GRC High-School branch you are given the mentorship and guidance to reach your goals, while still being given the bandwidth to grow your GRC Branch based on your creativity and personal vision. GRC High-School Branches primarily make an impact based on 3 main functions:
By reaching out to local non-profits or social impact startups and planning events, fundraising, and helping these organizations reach their full potential
Raising awareness by hosting events at your local high-school or within your local community, bringing in guest speakers, and interviewing NGO Leaders and Social Impact Start-up Founders
Contributing to GRC Group's Insights Think-Tank as a GRC Insights Fellow. Insights Fellows write research articles about causes they are passionate about (e.g sustainability, global health, development, empowerment) or in advocating for local/international NGOs and social impact startups by writing articles and spreading awareness about the work that these organizations do.
