Exciting Recent Achievements
Street Business School recently developed or expanded key partnerships with prominent organizations, and has also been featured in the Stanford Social Innovation Review (SSIR), the most prominent publication in the social space. We’re excited to share this news with you!
SBS has been partnering with BRAC, the largest NGO in the world, since 2021. The initial partnership included four customized curriculum modules designed to align with BRAC’S training, facilitation of virtual Training of Trainers, and ongoing expertise for BRAC’s rigorous training needs. Through this partnership, SBS has trained 41 Lead Coaches in Rwanda on the four modules and anticipates reaching 10,000 people.
“The Street Business School training exceeded my expectations”, shared Carrie Ellet, BRAC Regional Advisor for Youth Empowerment. “The training was relevant and straightforward, and it is obvious SBS has expertise on the African continent. SBS makes online training more fun and it absolutely hit our goals,” she added.

In September 2022, SBS developed and presented a customized 3-hour session at the invitation of UNESCO, as a part of an 8-part series provided to enhance social cohesion. Entitled “Ignite Inspiration,” it was focused on inspiring youth to entrepreneurship, and trained 75 local community trainers in the Maldives and Sri Lanka. The session combined components of several SBS training modules and included new trainer and participant workbooks and materials.
UNESCO shared, “A big thank you to [the SBS team] for leading a fantastic session! It was really well planned and executed, and the participants enjoyed it a lot. So many thanks from our side for being part of this series and delivering an excellent session! It was a pleasure to work together.”
