I am a member of the 2012-2013 RISE program and am extremely pleased with my experience thus far. My host site has challenged me in ways I never expected and offered numerous opportunities to develop my skills. New Sector's professional development sessions are generally excellent, but the real strength of the organization's PD comes from its dedicated full time staff. This program is an exceptional opportunity for recent college grads to experiment with a non profit career track, receive formal career mentorship, and develop professionally with a group of like minded fellowship members.

The RISE program is an excellent way to get a feel for the nonprofit and consulting sectors, build professional skills, provide capacity for Boston Area nonprofits, and most importantly affect positive social impact. I have learned a lot from my RISE cohort, placement site, and New Sector staff/trainings. It is an excellent, unique opportunity that I encourage anyone interested in the social sector to pursue.

New Sector provides a fantastic training and support system for young leaders looking to create lasting impact within the social sector. My time at New Sector gave me the tools to succeed within the social sector and connected me with an invaluable network of passionate social change advocates.

I am currently serving as a resident with New Sector Alliance. The organization is extremely well-run and efficient. Everyone is professional and passionate and cares deeply about serving the social sector. I am impressed by the impact that New Sector's Fellows and Residents have made, and by how well the organization has integrated itself into the business and nonprofit communities of the cities that it serves! I will hopefully continue to stay engaged with New Sector and New Sector alums for years to come.

I am currently a volunteer with New Sector, and I am so impressed with the program. It's a great community, and I know I am gaining great work experience, while helping my placement nonprofit build the capacity to expand theirprograms. Our NSA program director is helpful and personable, and our bi-monthly trainings directly relate to my projects with my nonprofit. I would recommend this fellowship

New Sector is amazing! I am so proud to be an NSA/AmeriCorps alum. They do a wonderful job educating young leaders to fill capacity-building roles. The things I learned and the network I built were both amazing.
