HBS cites a statistic that over two-thirds of HBS alumni will serve on a non-profit board at some point during their careers. We help our alumni find the right board opportunity and educate them to become high impact board members.
- Explore non-profit board openings posted on our website here.
- Volunteer on a Community Partners consulting project or brainstorming session for a non-profit organization in a space you are interested in. This can give you excellent insight into the sector, how a nonprofit operates differently from a for-profit organization, and connect with individuals involved in your interested area. It is not uncommon for alumni volunteers to end up joining the board of the non-profit client!
