Business Brigades at St. Thomas University

  • About
    St. Thomas University is a chapter of Global Business Brigades, an international movement of university students and professionals building economic opportunities in the developing world. We work alongside promising entrepreneurs and experienced year-round staff to create financial opportunities in remote, rural, and under resourced areas of Honduras and Ghana. We work with communities to build community-owned banks to provide access to loans, savings accounts and financial literacy for community members. Volunteers assist in consulting micro-enterprises, assessing loan capacity payments and providing financial literacy workshops to families.

    In conjunction with our Business Program, Global Brigades also supports communities with healthcare, sanitation and clean water projects, and uniquely implements these programs in a holistic model to meet a community’s health and economic goals. Our model systematically builds community ownership and collaboratively executes programs with the end goal of sustainably evolving to a relationship of impact monitoring.

St. Thomas Business Telebrigade April 2022 Panama


Volunteer Activity Description
Global Brigades offers Business TeleBrigades, a virtual international volunteer program for people who care about economic opportunities in under-resourced communities. Business TeleBrigades volunteers apply their business skills, foster cultural competency through virtual immersion, and with the support of our local teams and mentors from Deloitte or Accenture, create consulting deliverables to help grow small business clients from rural communities in Panama. TeleBrigades use virtual meeting software and on-the-ground economic development professionals to facilitate meaningful experiences for both volunteers and our clients. This innovative program incorporates live consultations, tangible consulting deliverables, and the opportunity for affordable loan capital to help clients execute on their business plans.
