Explore the Education, Nonprofit & Social Impact Career Community

This community is a great starting place for those who value purpose-driven work. Students interested in Education, Government, Nonprofit & Policy careers often like to instruct, advocate, mentor, research, guide, and assist individuals and various groups or populations.

Career paths dedicated to public good cut across industries, and are all connected through the common goal of addressing society’s big challenges. Those who follow this community are often involved in matters such as education reform, racial justice, human rights, sustainability and climate change, mental health, and food security. This work can occur in the classroom, through direct service organizations, community organizing, public service, fundraising, policy research and development, and even in corporate settings through roles in social responsibility.

No matter the setting, this community presents opportunities to connect over social change and mission-driven work on individual, community, and global scales.
