The GDC L&D Benefits 

At GDC Academy volunteers go through a structured programme aimed at furthering their career, professional networks and skill development as they contribute towards the delivery of GDC’s goals.

 

The 2 routes into the GDC Academy are through:

 

The Membership Programme– 1 Year

The Associate Programme– 6months

 

Both programmes are work-intense, engaging and provide good opportunities to develop strong professional skills and network.

What to Expect 

We focus our energy on key success metrics which are 

  1. Responsibility

  2. L&D

  3. Program outcomes

Our Volunteers are expected to be able to participate in supporting the teams with day to day activities, working with diversee teams on projects, learning and understanding leadership programs. Depending on the Cohort, a volunteer signing up to be on the program for 6 months will be getting an experience letter, while a volunteer staying on for 1 year gets a certificate of bearing the GDC Academy.

How Our Volunteers Collaborate

We have developed collaborative and effective means by which our volunteers use to collaborate with their peers. We group them into teams. Within this team structure, there are team leads and team supervisors who ensure synergy across the team structure. The entire project team works across several location and time zones. We make it a point of note to ensure comfort and ethics are enshrined within the team. We also provide a communication means to which volunteers can share ideas, interact and give updates while volunteering.

Studying Online

At the Global Diaspora Academy, we aim to build a community where volunteers not just fit into but belong to. We harness cultural and professional diversity to create a globally collaborative atmosphere for open innovation and volunteer engagement. 

In addition to induction and learning, team specific activities organized for volunteers to meet each other, we take time to give updates, share challenges, tell stories and celebrate successes of our volunteers like one big family. Find out more:
