How would you like to support?

We at McGill Nourish are raising funds in collaboration with SymBioSyn to help those in Cameroon being affected by the Anglophone Crisis. This project aims to help a camp of internally displaced people (IDP) with a population of about 300. We are raising the first sum of $8,000 CAD to help their short term needs of food and healthcare, and the following contributions will address long term needs such as education and vocational training in order to make a sustainable impact on their community. We have partnered with the CHRDA (Centre for Human Rights and Democracy in Africa) to be our main contact on the ground to deliver our aid. With our efforts, we hope to bring this population life-saving assistance that can help them sustain themselves through this dire crisis. If you have the resources to make a donation of any amount, we will be so appreciative!
Nourish International exists to nurture the skillsself-awareness, and confidence of students to become social impact leaders. 


Nourish chapters (teams of young leaders) are calling on their family, friends, peers, & broader communities to raise funds for their cause. Donate now to support students who are investing time and money in community-based initiatives!

Our Leaders in Action

Young leaders at UNC - Chapel
Hill used the Nourish platform
to stand in solidarity with the
"Boycott UNC" movement,
organized by students of color
calling for the removal of a
statue with direct ties to white
supremacy & slavery by
boycotting UNC Dining
Services.


They harnessed the the social
enterprise model to provide
over 3,500 affordable, 
alternative meals to students
from local vendors & donated
all revenue to UNC's recently
de-funded Center for Civil
Rights.


These young leaders are
harnessing resources, skills,
& ingenuity to meet a social
need & serve their community.

We prepare young people

to navigate the complex challenges

of being a social impact leader


The Nourish program delivers a learning experience
through teamwork, personalized feedback, 
coaching, curated resources/readings, 
& project delivery.

    infrastructure they need to amplify
    community impact.

    powerful, & committed to
    developing their WHOLE self.

are change agents for the future.


Coaching

Our staff, alumni, & supporters
provide one-on-one coaching.
We're able to devote time to
each young leader & the work
they create.


Community

We believe that relationships
are the primary context of
existence. Our community,
staff, & alumni facilitate in-person
& online "Nourish Circles" and
other events.


Learn by Doing

The Nourish program is an
experiential learning opportunity
& virtually all time is spent
creating, reflecting, & leveling up.





 

Through Nourish, students grow as leaders and responsible members of their communities. They develop emotional intelligence, creativity, and healthy communication and leadership skills; it means hard skills like financial literacy and soft skills like the ability to lead teams and know oneself.

 

As a result of their Nourish experience, students better understand themselves as people, better understand the nuances of creating and supporting impact in communities, and feel empowered to bring their passions and visions to life in support of social impact and positive change for communities (by valuing impact over intentions).
