Do you want to use your business skills to give back to your community?
Do you want to work with other professionals interested in using business for social and environmental good?
If so, you should apply to join the Net Impact Seattle Professional Chapter’s Service Corps inaugural program with our partner Northwest Center! In this program you will learn more about the challenges our community faces through volunteering your time to work on a project for a local non profit.
Northwest Center has served people with developmental conditions like autism, down syndrome, and cerebral palsy for over 46 years. The organization is operated through a unique social enterprise model, owning and operating thirteen competitive commercial businesses that create unrestricted flows of income that are reinvested in their Northwest Center Kids and Northwest Center Works operating divisions to supplement public funding.

This Service Corps project is an opportunity to experience first hand how the proven, highly-evolved techniques of business can be used to create justice in our community. The Service Corps project is “emergent” in the sense that whatever actions the project team decides to take will be a function of its response to the experience of inclusion and the use of business to drive social good.
Key Volunteer Qualifications
- Ability to commit to the Service Corps time requirement of 15-20 hours per month of work for three months
- Specific business skills and experience (consulting, marketing, strategy, etc)
- Openness to learning from nonprofit
- Appreciation/sensitivity to nonprofit sector challenges
If you are interested, please download the Service Corps Volunteer Application 2012 and submit to email@example.com by November 12th. Any questions should be directed to the same email address.
We look forward to hearing from you!
