Join fellow Wharton alumni to make a difference in Boston with Community Consulting Teams (CCT)
Make your favorite cocktail and join The Wharton Club of Boston and Community Consulting Teams of Boston (CCT Boston) for a virtual happy hour and conversation about community service and non-profit consulting on Monday, October 24, 2022 at 7pm. Meet over Zoom with service-minded Wharton alumni and hear about the Wharton Club’s partnership with CCT Boston to help local nonprofits. CCT Boston assembles teams of MBA alumni from top business schools to provide strategic pro bono management consulting for local non-profit organizations. If you are a graduate of any of the Wharton affiliated business programs, we welcome you to join us. For more than ten years, the Wharton Club of Boston has been a proud sponsor of CCT volunteers, and we had 15 Wharton volunteers on projects this year!
Heather Byrns, The Co-Director of William James INTERFACE, a Mental Health Referral Service will describe their organization’s experience with CCT and the impact CCT had had on their organization. Located in Newton, MA, WJINTERFACE, affiliated with William James College, serves individuals in over 50 towns and schools to promote Mental Wellness and Prevent Mental Illness. The WJINTERFACE high touch service provides resources and referral matches based on stated need, location, availability and insurance or fee requirements of the caller.
Wharton alumni who have served CCT as consultants, project managers, and board members will describe 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 MBA alumni from Wharton and other top schools with diverse backgrounds
- Applying your business knowledge towards an interesting and challenging assignment
- Learning how non-profits operate
The time commitment will be 3-5 hours per week, for five months. Projects kick off in January 2023 and run through May 2023 with project meetings that will include a few in-person sessions to meet the clients and the teams as well as weekly check-in meetings that are often virtual or hybrid.
