Program Leader Requirements

I Agree…

  • That I have a strong alignment with the Get HOPE Global mission statement.
  • To cite Get HOPE Global as the originator of the curriculum.

Program Leader Checklist:

  1. I have purchased a training program from Get HOPE Global.
  2. I have a Get HOPE Global user ID and password from the purchase of the training program.
  3. I have successfully led a group through the Pre-Qualification Sessions.  (Starting has 8 Pre-Qualification sessions, Growing has 4.)
  4. I know the language of my country of service well enough to translate–or have someone to help me translate—and I can teach the simplified business and biblical concepts as written in the Instructional Guide.
  5. I speak English and I am currently associated with a US-based organization of reference. I have a good working relationship with my agency or organization and have approval of my supervisor to apply and participate in the HOPE program. (If you are not currently associated with a US-based organization of reference, then you will need to know someone in a US-based organization who can be contacted and who can write a character reference on your behalf.)
  6. I have been in my country of service long enough to have a working knowledge and understanding of the local culture.
  7. I have a secure method to receive and send funds.
  8. I have reliable internet access and printing capabilities.
  9. I have a minimum of 7 committed students to participate in the loan process, who all agree to assume the responsibility for the repayment of all the loans within the group.
  10. I plan to remain in the same general proximity throughout the repayment of the loan.

NOTE: We suggest you enlist a co-worker or a national woman to help in this program. This is optional – but strongly recommended.

Program Leaders are not financially liable for the repayment of a group’s loans but successful loan repayment is a key factor in the ability to apply for loans for future groups.  (See Loan FAQs for more details.)
