Our One-of-A-Kind Culture
When you join the Me to We family, you become part of a one-of-a-kind social change movement and a celebrated corporate culture.
We believe we can transform the world by shifting our focus from thinking "me" to acting to "we"—and that belief shapes everything we do.
Me to We transforms people into world-changers, one action and experience at a time. We offer ethical and environmentally-friendly clothing, jewellery and books, as well as life-changing experiences including volunteer trips overseas, speakers, workshops and camps.
You can help us build Me to We behind the scenes using your business savvy to work with clients, edit books and design T-shirts. Or perhaps you’d like to work on the frontlines running workshops, facilitating trips or engaging with new travelers.
We look for one singular quality above all else: a passion for social change.
We provide recent graduates with remarkable opportunities for growth. And we welcome mid-career professionals looking to share their valuable skills as leaders and mentors.
We work hard to ensure our team has the tools for success, including professional development with our in-house training team and mentorship from corporate and charitable leaders. Our staff career coach ensures that all those entrusted with leading a team get extensive training including people management and emotional intelligence training.

- We’re social entrepreneurs who believe in learning on the job, rising to the challenge and seizing the moment for maximum impact.
