Apply by March 11 for the Spring 2011 Service Corps

Net Impact’s Service Corps program provides an opportunity for our NJ and NYC chapter volunteers and nonprofits to come together for actionable consulting projects. These 10-12 week projects focus on marketing, business planning/operations, and strategic planning. Volunteers commit 15-20 hours per month to a nonprofit client, creating valuable relationships with team members, developing their understanding of the nonprofit sector, and creating meaningful impact for their client nonprofit. In NY/NJ, over 80 volunteers and 20 nonprofits have taken part in Service Corps over the past three years.

Please email nycservicecorps@gmail.com to receive the application for the Service Corps. With nine potential projects to work with this season, there are more than enough volunteer opportunities so please spread the word about this season.
