Day One program

Everything you need to know about Day One
  • Your daily life

    A glance of what your weeks will look like
  • An intense schedule packed with learning, purposeful work, and once-in-a-lifetime experience.

  • Your adventure with Day One will be intense. Your days will be filled with trainings, site visits, hands-on workshop, and plenty of time to build & implement your social projects. Oh… and when we’re not working our butts off to create social impact, we’ll be partying all night long. Work hard, play hard!

    Please note: this week schedule is tentative and depends on the module you choose (“Be a volunteer” or “Become an Entrepreneur”, or both). Volunteers might have more volunteering activities, while entrepreneurs receive more trainings and workshops.

  • Questions & answers
    The schedule looks quite packed. Will I have enough free time?

    This training schedule is an example to give you an idea of what the program will look like. Don’t worry, it will most certainly not be this busy every week. You will have plenty of free time and free weekends to travel and see Malaysia.

    Do I have to attend both modules?

    No, but it is recommended to attend both. You can attend only Module A, or you can attend only Module B. But you and the people you’ll be working with will certainly reap the best results when you attend the High Impact Module (a combination of Module A & B). Plus, if you do, there’s a sweet discount.

    What if I go on a weekend trip and miss a training?

    The training schedule is for you to follow at your own discretion. All we ask of you is to ensure you don’t let your team down. Should you want to travel on a weekday, talk to your team to see if this will conflict with your schedule. We understand that you want to experience Asia to the fullest 😉

    Is this the final schedule?

    This is a tentative schedule with sample trainings. The content of the trainings and workshops and their times might vary depending on the availability of the trainers. Depending on the type of social projects which are started by participants you will receive customized trainings.

    Can I request specific trainings?

    Yes! Should you want to receive a specific training topic, you can let us know during your application. We will try to attend to your request best we can.

    What kind of NGOs will I be working with?

    Some of the best in Malaysia and South East Asia. Incitement has a wide network of NGO partners, some of which you’ll be working with directly. The impact areas we generally work on are poverty, education, climate change, energy poverty, homeless, youth, health, community development, and refugee issues. All our projects are aligned with the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals.

    Can I download the full schedule?

    Yes. You can find the full schedule in the brochure. Remember: the schedule is tentative, changes might happen. If you have any questions about the schedule, feel free to ask us!
