Affiliated with the AVI (Australian Volunteers Indonesia) program, Andrew is assigned as YCM’s entrepreneur adviser for a year, where he is focused on the development and progress of our SOLA Kreatif Media business and recent-established cooperative, SOLA Rumah Karya.
“I have been helping YCM [SOLA and the cooperative] develop products and market the services. In addition, I would like to build the capacity of the team as well, specifically on strategic planning,” Andrew said.
In Australia, Andrew worked as a Bahasa Indonesia high school teacher, so has been a great asset to YCM as. Aside from his work with SOLA and Koperasi, he’s been able to support the tutors with sharing their knowledge, and can speak fluently with those who are not yet proficient in English.
