Nonprofits, Direct Service & Advocacy

Nonprofits are mission-driven organizations that are dedicated to addressing a particular issue or advocating for a cause. This sector is vast, and includes numerous industries and job functions. You might find yourself working directly with others or advocating on behalf of issues and/or specific communities. Nonprofits range in size and often employ professionals across functional areas — from direct service to finance, leadership and marketing. With the skills you like to use and functional areas you’re interested in, you can find yourself working at a Nonprofit in a role that allows you to support a cause you care about.
