Pro Bono Consulting Make a meaningful contribution to the NY community

Community Partners Share your business skills with local nonprofits

Volunteer for a brainstorming or consulting project, work closely with nonprofit leaders, and apply your business skills to solve well-defined problems. HBS alumni project teams are energized by working together to strengthen the local nonprofit community. Each year over 250 HBS alumni volunteer to assist 30+ nonprofit organizations across varied sectors. www.hbscnycommunitypartners.org

Alumni interested in volunteering and nonprofits seeking pro bono services, please contact communitypartners@hbscny.org or visit www.hbscnycommunitypartners.org.

Skills Gap Initiative Help close the skills gap

Join a team of HBS alumni volunteers building innovative solutions to the skills gap problem. Work with colleges and employers to create programs that assist individuals who do not have the requisite skillsets and employers who can’t find qualified staff. This program stems from the HBS Competitiveness Initiative.

To volunteer or for more information, contact Richard Kane ’68 (richkane1@gmail.com) or Barry Puritz ’65 (bpuritz@gmail.com).

Our events address a wide range of topics that attract our alumni, Club members, and the Greater New York community–from Google technology to Citibank strategy to ABT performances.
