"The fact that I can actually use my business skills to help positively impact the world is inspiring. I recently visited Guatemala to help consult with 20 small businesses on their branding issues. It was an enriching experience and I feel as if I got much more than I gave."

"I volunteer over Skype with businesses in Afghanistan. The work is intellectually stimulating. Resources and tools that are readily available here in the U.S. are not elsewhere, so we need to be creative. It's all very fulfilling. Try it and you will never want to do anything else!"

We ask our member/volunteers to contribute to our mission with a monthly donation. These membership donations contribute about 6% of our annual operating budget. In some cases, we offer complimentary memberships to experts with particular technical skills in high demand by our Fast Runner entrepreneurs. Traveling Mentors may be eligible for financial subsidies to partially offset travel costs.
