Kellogg Corps’ mission is to make opportunities available for second year students to volunteer their time and energy in bringing business skills and management expertise to non-profit organizations in developing countries throughout the world.

The group’s key goals are:

1) To encourage recent Kellogg School graduates to take part in an international volunteer experience

2) To provide non-governmental organizations and non-profit enterprises with skills and services that can make an impact and which they could not otherwise afford

3) To increase awareness throughout the world of the Kellogg School’s role in promoting global citizenship through community development

History

Kellogg Corps was founded in 1996 by four second year students who initiated five service projects in the U.S. and abroad. So far, Kellogg Corps has sent 230 Kellogg School volunteers to close to 30 developing countries.

Example Project

In 2005, Kellogg Corps sent a team of five to Tibet to work with Kham Aid on creating a business plan on Tibetan handicraft. The volunteers on this project were Brandon Davito '05, Cherie Yu '05, Kameron Rezai '05, Liz Henning '05 and Rachael Lester '05. The Kham Aid Foundation was founded in 1997 by Pamela Logan to support conservation of Tibet's architecture and art.
