Applications are now being accepted for the Spring 2020 Non-Profit Mentorship Program!

Are you interested in careers that support, teach, and advocate for diverse populations including members of underrepresented communities, young adults, and children? Individuals who work in non-profits come from a variety of backgrounds and have a broad range of skill sets, working in roles such as volunteer coordination, advocacy, marketing and communications, fundraising, and so much more. Join this program to learn about how your skills, strengths and interests can translate into a non-profit career.
