With support from the Corporation for National and Community Service, New Sector runs two AmeriCorps programs through which we recruit, train and support diverse, exceptionally talented emerging leaders to serve nonprofit clients. Our Program Participants provide capacity building service with our host sites, while gaining training and support for their professional skills.
Capacity Building for Nonprofits:
Prior to matching a Program Participant with a host site, New Sector helps scope a strategic project that provides critical capacity-building services while building the Resident or Summer Fellow's knowledge and skills. Practice areas of Residents’ and Fellows’ service can vary, and focus on enabling greater capacity for nonprofits to deliver on their missions, with lasting impact beyond the Program Participants’ service terms. Read more about our projects that help organizations achieve their mission.
Our Residents and Fellows serve full-time with nonprofit host sites in a variety of social impact areas, including education, job skills, and health care. Read more about our focus areas.
Training and Support
During their New Sector program, Residents and Fellows receive hands-on training and support. Read more about training and support.
