About StreetwiZe

Our (modern) world is ever more about uncertainty and ambiguity. Many of the forces driving change are beyond our control.

As organisations face rising customer expectations and market disruption, teams have to creatively engage in emerging opportunities for growth. Addressing these outside pressures while reinventing inside behaviour is not easy.

Does difficult mean impossible? Of course not! It is possible to flex and adapt teams and organisations. What it takes is to unlearn the old and learn the better. Go for the basics. Focus on skills that make the people and the organisation more fit at navigating today’s uncertain and ever-changing world. You just have to become more streetwise and StreetwiZe can help you doing so with their talent and leadership development programs.

We invest 100% of our profits in educational programs for street kids worldwide. As an impact driven social enterprise being B Corp certified is a must!

The Change We Seek®

Street kids are an inspiration. No environment is more uncertain and hostile than the rugged streets these children make a living on. The people from StreetwiZe have come to know many extraordinary boys and girls who make the impossible possible, despite the challenging context they live in. Next to the talent and leadership development programs in companies, they deploy Mobile School teams in more than 20 countries on four continents. They do so for more then 15 years now. The mobile schools are designed to empower street kids. The trainers work with many thousands street youngsters, on an annual basis. During all those years, the boys and girls from the street have consistently inspired them with their tremendous stories and deep experiences. Close examination of all these stories offered StreetwiZe fundamental insights. The survivors standing out successfully on the street all share very distinguished and specific skills. The StreetwiZe trainers called them ‘street skills’ and integrated them as a backbone in the talent and leadership development programs for companies. StreetwiZe invests 100% of its profits in the continuous development of its Mobile School Programs. The overall aim is to increase the sustainable development of all people and organisations they work with, building win-win relations between their customers and the streets.
