The CAP program is an excellent opportunity for volunteers to meet and work with fellow alums from a variety of graduating classes and backgrounds, to gain insights into the inner workings of nonprofits, and to have a real impact on local organizations. Teams typically consist of about 5-8 alumni, who work side by side with the leadership of the nonprofits between October and May. The time commitment averages about 2-4 hours per week, though varies in intensity during that period.
The positive experience of CAP teams has contributed to a high repeat rate of volunteers. Typically, more than 50% of the volunteers have experience with prior CAP projects.
To volunteer with CAP please e-mail Executive Director Amelia Angella at firstname.lastname@example.org to be added to the mailing list.

Volunteers tells us they find working on CAP projects satisfying and valuable on many levels.
“I enjoyed the intellectual, political and business challenges working with the team and the client in developing a strategy. I particularly liked working with my teammates and the client’s Board.”
“It felt great to be able to offer insight and advice that the client valued so highly. It was personally invigorating to get out of what I do every day and think about new problems with new people.”
