Introduction

Thank you for your interest in applying to serve volunteer on one of Compass’ consulting teams for the 2021-22 project cycle. 

While Classic Projects have begun, this application form is open for those interested in being placed on our waitlist. We maintain an active waitlist throughout the project year as circumstances arise where we need to bring another volunteer on a consulting team. 

Classic Projects run from Fall 2021 to Spring 2022. Each team has a Project Leader, Deputy Project Leader (by invitation only), and 6 Team Members. 

Volunteers (Team Members)
  • Availability to spend 2-3 hours/week from late October 2021 to May 2022 on a consulting project for a local nonprofit, including regular team meetings
  • MBAs, consultants, attorneys and other business professionals with a variety of skillsets 
  • Have an undergraduate degree from 2020 or earlier
Note about 2021-22 Projects
While we can’t know for certain how the project year will look, we do know based on last year's experience that Compass’ program works well virtually. We hope our program can include some valuable in-person components this year including client meeting activities and networking events. That said, we will continue to monitor and evaluate the climate around us, and no volunteer will be obliged to participate in any in-person activities. We are optimistic that we can have the best of both worlds with a hybrid model!
