Apply to take part in this year’s 100minds programme
100minds is a social enterprise which provides students with a mentor while raising funds for charity
100minds is seeking applications from interested third level students to take part in their fundraising/mentoring scheme. 100minds connects 100 students with worthy causes and encourages them to run €1000 fundraising projects that will develop their entrepreneurial skills. Each student who takes part will be assigned a mentor who is a graduate working for some of the biggest companies in Ireland. In the past there have been mentors who work for Twitter, Google, KPMG, Bank of Ireland and Accenture, and many more.
The aim of 100minds is to raise funds for the Temple Street Foundation while providing the students who take part with practical work experience and a professional mentor who works in the industry which they are interested in. Their mentor will give them advice on their fundraising project, CV and future interviews, all tailored to the job they wish to obtain after graduation.
Each student who takes part is given an online profile page on the 100minds website which acts as a hub to track and log the progress of their project, while providing a platform for people to donate via credit/debit cards. This money is then directly transferred to the Temple Street Foundation’s bank account. The online hub also enables the students to blog about their experiences and highlight the things they’ve learned.
100minds is now open for applications and will remain open until 31 October 2016. Fundraising begins on 7 November 2016, and ends on 13 February 2017.
