Nonprofit & Government

The Nonprofit and Government Academy is for students committed to issues including policy, security, environmental stewardship, and advocacy through employment with the government or domestic/international nonprofits. This academy hosts two separate Career Weeks, and our network includes professionals from the CIA, Teach for America, Center for American Progress, United Way, think tanks, and more, and helps students navigate complex but worthwhile paths to success.
