PennPAC seeks a Deputy Director to oversee the programming of our dynamic, growing nonprofit organization.
PennPAC (Pro Bono Alumni Consulting) works with nonprofit organizations to help solve their business challenges through the engagement of UPenn alumni who serve as pro bono consultants.
Headquartered in New York City, PennPAC engages Penn alumni from around the world and runs consulting engagements for organizations based in NYC, Philadelphia, and California’s Bay Area.
Since our launch in 2011, we have provided 35,000 hours of service valued at $7M to 150 nonprofits through a corps of 1,000+ Penn alumni-volunteers. Leveraging the power of these alumni, who become involved in internal PennPAC operations, as well as client-facing pro bono consulting activities, enables PennPAC to maintain a lean staff team that works directly with a diverse group of volunteers.
PennPAC advances its mission of harnessing the intellectual talents and professional skills of alumni of the University of Pennsylvania in a meaningful and socially beneficial way through the following programs:
Full projects are consulting engagements staffed with a team of six consultants that run each fall and spring.
Mini projects are smaller and less structured than full engagements, typically with two or three consultants.
Coaching sessions provide targeted advice to small organizations from a team of experienced leaders.
ImPACt events are one-night sessions that offer a group of volunteers the chance to work with the beneficiaries of a nonprofit or advise a nonprofit’s leadership team on a strategic challenge.
