Every year a new committee runs Cambridge Development Initiative. This provides an unparalleled opportunity for students to oversee an entire organisation and manage a team of over 40 while implementing hands-on, community-based development projects. The CDI founders and the Board of Trustees support the student committee to ensure that the committee is equipped with the advice and skills to run the organisation successfully. The predecessor in each position is also available for advice and support throughout the year.
CDI has blossomed over the last four years and is currently in a crucial stage of development. The next student committee will have an invaluable opportunity to take CDI forward regarding project continuation and sustainability, the emergence of a global student development initiative network and codifying the working relationship between the UK and Tanzanian branches of the organisation. As a member of the CDI executive committee, you will have the opportunity to grow as a young leader, visionary, and practitioner in sustainable development.
