Our mission: TO CREATE IMPACT
180 Degrees Consulting was founded in 2007 at the University of Sydney. Since its beginnings, it has grown to become the world's largest student volunteer consultancy with over 80 branches across 33 countries. The organization started with a mission to connect talented and socially-conscious students with high potential nonprofit organizations and social enterprises to further their social impact.
Our branch at USC started in 2017 in an effort to see more opportunities for students to engage in nonprofit consulting and develop a passion for social impact. We pursue the mission on the international organization, focusing on organizations in the Los Angeles area. Since our founding, we’ve worked with over ten non-profits and social enterprises, bringing the diverse skill sets and academic backgrounds of our consultants to the table to deliver innovative ideas.
LETTER FROM OUR FOUNDERS
Welcome to 180 Degrees Consulting at USC. We’re glad you stopped by!
As the co-founders of 180 Degrees Consulting at USC, we wanted to affect transformational social change by combining business skills with a passion for making a difference in our communities. From two projects and fourteen consultants in our first semester of fall 2017 to four projects and thirty-one consultants in spring 2019, we are so excited to see how 180 Degrees at USC will continue to thrive under the capable leadership of Arham and the new executive team!
How We Create Social Impact:
Our commitment to lasting social impact is, and will always be, at the core of our consulting practice and organization’s culture.We strive to provide access to strategy consulting services normally only afforded to large businesses to nonprofit organizations and social enterprises.
Our consultants are selected based on their passion for helping others make the world a more just and equitable place and for their problem solving abilities. We endeavor to make our organization a diverse and inclusive one, believing that our members’ varied viewpoints and backgrounds increase the effectiveness of our work.
We are looking forward to meeting you whether as a potential consultant or an organization interested in how we can help you fulfill your mission!
