HR Consulting Opportunities
Use Your Professional HR Skills by Supporting Nonprofits
Where do organizations that heal, feed, educate, inspire, shelter, entertain, and nurture our community go when they need help? Many turn to 501 Commons. The 450 volunteer consultants who are members of the 501 Commons service corps put their professional skills and experience to work by providing services to schools and nonprofit organizations.
Members of 501 Commons’ service corps support nonprofits by acting as:
- Consultants on projects
- Facilitators of meetings, retreats, and conference
- Coaches for nonprofit leaders
While the requirements of each project vary, on average consultants serve between 6-12 hours/month from 4-6 months.
Benefits of volunteering include:
- Learning new skills you can apply to personal and professional situations
- Gaining access to our online training, resource library, and professional development workshop
- Applying your background and expertise towards supporting the nonprofit community
