The Wharton Club of Boston and Community Consulting Teams of Boston are gathering for cocktails and conversation about community service and non-profit consulting on Thursday, October 13, 2016 at Anthem Kitchen and Bar in Boston. Enjoy complimentary appetizers while you network with service-minded business school alumni and hear about the Wharton Club’s partnership with CCT Boston to help local non-profits. CCT Boston assembles teams of MBA alumni from top business schools to provide pro bono management consulting for local non-profit organizations. The Wharton Club of Boston has been a proud sponsor of CCT teams for the past seven years.
Christine Judd, Director of Roca Springfield, will talk briefly about the impact the Wharton/CCT partnership has had on the entire Roca organization through three different consulting projects over the past five years. Based in Chelsea, Roca is one of the first non-profit organizations to receive social impact bonds to support its mission to disrupt the cycle of incarceration and poverty by helping young people transform their lives.
Wharton alumni who have served CCT as consultants, project managers, and board members will be present to talk with you about their experiences. You will also hear about some of the potential projects that will be staffed in the upcoming season.
We are now seeking volunteers for teams comprised of alumni from a variety of top business schools. As a CCT volunteer, you can benefit by:
- Making an impact on a local non-profit in a fun and satisfying way
- Networking with, and learning from other Wharton alumni with diverse backgrounds
- Applying your business knowledge towards an interesting and challenging assignment
- Learning how non-profits operate
The time commitment would be about 16 hours per month, for four to five months. Projects kick off in January, 2017 and run through May, 2017.
