    EdGE is a customizable online learning platform designed to support critical reflection, dialogue, and action across differences of culture and power. Our public program, Widening Circles, is open to all. Jumpstart your gap year, supplement your semester, gain experience, or prepare for a career shift with our Widening Circles program, a unique combination of global internships (online or in-person), curated curriculum, local engagement, personalized mentorship, and digital storytelling.

    Immersive internships. Participants work within our network of over 140 vetted autonomous organizations in over 40 countries. EdGE participants find positions within our network based on their skills and interests, and communicate directly with our Partners to plan their work. It is also possible for participants to work with organizations outside of the Omprakash network.

    An extensive curriculum. Participants join peers in an online pre-departure classroom to explore the moral, ethical, historical, environmental and economic complexities of international aid and volunteering.

    Personal mentorship. Participants receive dedicated personal guidance from experienced Omprakash mentors before, during, and after their work abroad.

    A structure to maximize impact. EdGE culminates with the completion of a collaborative, creative, research-based Capstone Project, which is designed to be of lasting value to the host organization and shared throughout the Omprakash network.

    Academic credit. If you are a student, Omprakash will work with your school administrators so that you can receive academic credit for your work.

    Unparallelled Affordability. Omprakash does not charge any overhead or 'placement' fees for internships, and offers need-based financial aid to reduce the EdGE program fee.
