Corporate Responsibility Consulting – Application Deadline October 1
Many of you joined Net Impact Boston to make the transition into fulfilling careers in CSR, sustainability, or social enterprise. Corporate Responsibility Consulting can help you take the next step toward a career aligned with your social and environmental values by gaining concrete experience — without leaving your job.

We’re working with local, values-aligned companies to set up projects on which you’ll consult directly for the organization that needs your help. The time commitment is 5-10 hours per week over a 3-, 6-, or 9-month term, depending on the organization’s needs and your availability. Those of you who are currently employed can do the project during professional-friendly hours, such as meeting on-site over lunch and working off-site on your own schedule. Your compensation is the contacts you’ll make and the great experience on your resume.

We’re accepting applications now through October 1 for the fall program launch.

Please fill out an application here.

Questions? Email CRC@netimpactboston.org.

Board Fellows Program – Application Deadline October 1

Net Impact Boston has been partnering with local non-profit organizations to help provide professional expertise to their boards while exposing its members to strategic and governance issues facing non-profits. From helping a charter school in Boston launch a marketing program, to assisting an organization dedicated to educating girls in third world countries develop its strategic plan, Net Impact Boston Board Fellows have been making a real impact.

We are now accepting applications for professionals to join our Board Fellows program. If you are interested in joining the board of a local non-profit organization, we welcome you to apply.

The application is available here.

We are also accepting applications from local non-profit organizations. If you know of any organizations that would like to host a fellow, we invite them to apply here.

For more information, please check out the Board Fellows section of our website or email boardfellows@netimpactboston.org.
