What makes this support different

Humanitarian Institute was founded on the belief that all people should have access to a humanitarian career. The education you’ve acquired, and the experiences you have should not be the sole determinants of your humanitarian career trajectory.

Today, Humanitarian Institute is a global leader in transformative education, training and career coaching to aspiring humanitarians and aid professionals. We connect with humanitarian leaders from around the world to provide students and professionals with the resources and support required to secure pathways to success in the humanitarian industry.

Our approach enables students and professionals to discover and explore their interests, knowledge and skills to target their career ambitions. Humanitarian Institute supports students and professionals to see the pathways forward and determine the steps required to get there - guided by our strategy, mentoring and support.

*Onsite and/or online support (location dependent) - we support Humanitarians worldwide!
