Students 'Get Networking' at Social Impact Career Workshop 3
For many Smith students, an ideal career is one with more than just a big salary. They want a career that aligns with their values and supports a mission they feel passionate about. During the Social Impact Career Workshop series co-hosted by Center for Social Value Creation, Office of Career Services, and co-founder of More Than Money Careers, Mrim Boutla, Smith students learned how to translate experience and education into a career path aligned with their personal values.
Students Showcase a Semester of Nonprofit Consulting Work
There was certainly a sense of accomplishment at the ChangeTheWorld.org Symposium and Reception hosted by the Center for Social Value Creation (CSVC). After a semester-long consulting engagement with nonprofits across the country, student consultants were eager to discuss the impressive outcomes of their work. In the beginning of the fall semester, students were grouped in teams and then paired with nonprofits through ChangeTheWorld.org, a program run in partnership between CSVC and Grassroots.org.
Sustainability Jam: Building Skills to Change the World
Learning a new skill and then applying that skill to create new, real-world solutions in one weekend is a remarkable accomplishment for anyone. Last weekend, that’s exactly what a group of 40 motivated students did at the 2nd annual College Park Sustainability Jam. Students used the principles of Design Thinking to develop prototype solutions to a myriad of sustainability issues.
We have no more events for the fall semester. Check back in with us over winter break and good luck on finals!
