As a capacity building and training program, Cabutra understands the importance of supporting emerging social change leaders with their professional development. Whether for an individual, a college class, workshop participants or others, we want to help emerging leaders think through their strategy and plan for gaining pertinent knowledge and experience in a particular sector of social change.
We are available to give feedback and guidance on your career path and resume, both because we have reviewed thousands of resumes and interviewed hundreds of applicants over the years, and because of the valuable lessons we have learned through our own career transitions.
We can discuss the type of coursework you may want to study, what sort of internship would best suit your professional interest, what skills sets you need to strengthen your resume, or how to highlight your professional strengths and address your professional shortcomings in an interview.
Our particular focus - where we can provide the best practical advice - is in the area of sustaining natural and human communities. This includes, but is not limited to, environmental advocacy, wildlife and land conservation, renewable energy, rural community and economic development, eco-tourism, clean water and sanitation, small scale agricultural and food security, and education (including outdoor/environmental education).
If you are interested in a sector of the social change movement outside of sustainability, we can contact our diverse set of colleagues to find someone who can better speak to your professional interests.
Finally, we are happy to visit in person, meet by video conference or speak on the phone.
We look forward to mentoring you as you work to strengthen your professional capacities.

When I was looking for advice about navigating the complex network
of international jobs and opportunities, Tom instantly welcomed the
opportunity to help me. He is not only able to provide valuable insights
from a career perspective, but offers advice that both challenges and
encourages people to grow as a member of our global community. My
first conversation with him left me feeling inspired about the world
around me, and the numerous ways in which I personally could give
back as a global leader.
