How Does PennPAC Work?
-PennPAC recruits and creates teams of University of Pennsylvania alumni as volunteers to provide pro bono project-based consulting services to New York-based non-profit organizations.
-PennPAC works with a variety of local non-profits and undertakes a new slate of projects each fall and spring.
-PennPAC consultants are alumni of all age groups, at various stages of their careers, from many industries.
-Small consulting teams of 4 to 6 alumni complete 8 to 10-week assignments.
-Fall projects run from early October to mid-December; Spring projects run from early March to mid-May.
-The expected commitment during each project is 2 to 4 hours per week.
-The project scope depends on the non-profit’s needs and can cover one of several fields, including strategy, finance, management, human resources, budgeting, and technology.
