The 2022 Non-Profit Careers Conference will be held January 17th-21st, 2022. Student applications are due by Friday, November 5th. Apply now through myHC.
The annual Non-Profit Careers Conference is held every year (typically, in January) for students considering careers in non-profit and community based organizations, activism, public service, and social change. Check out the 2020 NPCC Agenda (PDF) to learn more about some of the conference offerings.
The workshop has three purposes:
- To introduce participants to the range of viable and diverse career options in the non-profit sector;
- To engage participants in reflection upon how they might utilize their unique skills in service to the broader society;
- To prepare participants to enter public service by providing experiences and skills helpful to them and their future organizations.
The program is taught by Holy Cross alumni, faculty and staff working within a non-profit or public service setting at the international, national, regional, and local levels.
*Housing and meals for the week-long conference are funded by the College.*
