Mission: TSP’s mission is” Every good deed deserves a good leader”, every individual we help recruit should be able to make a measurable difference for the well being of society. Third Sector Partners is a boutique high-end executive search firm serving social and corporate sector clients desirous of recruiting exceptional talent at senior management and Board levels, who will make a measurable impact to the world of have-nots and bottom of the pyramid markets. Third Sector Partner’s mission, “Every Good Deed Deserves Every Good Leader” fills the void which has plagued the sector for many years: leadership quality of top management in positions of change and influence.  The profits it creates are hived back into a home grown initiative “Katalyst” which, in keeping with the spirit of “commitment to core competencies in service of the society”, helps identify talented girls from underprivileged communities and gives them a chance at life through education, personality development and life skills. Katalyst hopes to staff the world of future management with women leaders of substance. And so that none of this becomes the privilege of a few and the domain of talent and leadership search becomes inclusive, self-sustaining and almost a movement, Third Sector Partrners has recently launched barefootjobs.org, an online job portal exclusively dedicated to the not-for-profit, development, corporate social responsibility and sustainability sectors.

Katalyst is helping us in all .I mean in every issue where we want some guidance and assistance.It is not only helping in financial matter in order to continue our academics but also doing its best effort to make us mentally strong enough to face the situation. Every weekend we meet our mentor.We will have test frequently which helps us to build our knowledge for interviews and give us support for career development.They help us how to plan our daily work .I am very thankful to this ,without this it would be very difficult for me to continue my education.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

I am very great full to have to have such a good staff.They are very friendly and show individual care .They help us in improving our skills in which we are weak.

The Katalyst program of the Third Sector Partners has made it possible for girl students with an exceptional academic performance but from a poor economic background to become the future leaders of our corporate world.In my first year of accociation with them I sponsored and mentored 2 girls.Both of them have now completed their engineering course from a prestigious college in Mumbai and are employed with highly reputed organisations.One has joined Larson and Toubro and the other is with Shaporji Palonji Constructions.In the 1 year of mentoring we would meet every month and discuss their progress in academics as well as focus on personality development. The girls would also often call/email and share any other concerns/difficulties/achievements etc.This program has also contributed to me personally as today I can very proudly say that I was instrumental in shaping the careers of 2 very needy but intelligent girls.This year I have sponsored 3 girls and will be their mentor till they achieve their dreams.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

mentoring 2 girls who today are successfully employed with very big and reputed firms.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

guiding young minds towards achieving their goals

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

very focussed on their goal of helping the girl students.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

change the lives of many more girls and help them live their dreams

I am doing my final year engineering and i am being helped by KATALYST from past one year..this is one such organisation where students are not only provided with financial assistance to continue their studies but also boosted mentally to face the outside world. Each and every student is provided with a mentor who is helping us in solving any kind of problems we face either academics related or others. Every weekend there are classes conducted teaching students C programming, analytical skills and lots more which is helping us to face the campus interviews with confidence.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

TSP contacted me on the telephone as they were seeking a candiate for a senior position in a non-profit. Through the run in they kept in touch with me and gathered a good deal of information of my strengths and probably weaknesses. Although they were telephoning me frequently it was on the whole non-invasive and extremely cordial. I personally enjoyed talking to the young lady who was managing the selection process. Eventually I did not get selected for the job, but that was not a decision made by the TSP since they were facilitators. An organization like TSP can only take a horse to water it cannot make it drink.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Get them to bargain for some degree of committment or respect for their evaluation so that it cannot be just used as a fig leaf.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Transparency and earnestness

Ways to make it better...

They had some weightage given to their assessements in the final selection process, which they evidently did not have in the case I experienced.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Whether they can actually help in bringing transparency in a general culture in which it is in short supply

One thing I'd also say is that...

Katalyst (initiative of Third Sector Partners) follows a really strong result-oriented approach which is what sets them apart. They are constantly assessing their impact and looking for ways to improve their effectiveness. This philosophy goes into every little activity which is what makes the difference. They are very focussed on their effort and really strive to make a difference to the long term lives of the people they work with.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the way they follow up each activity and assess its effectiveness.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

increase its size of program.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

their clear focus of intervention, willingness to improve, transparency.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

enthusiastic and really believed that their effort could make a difference.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

increase the number of students in their program across more cities.

Ways to make it better...

there could be more coordination between all the volunteers.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

increasing its scale and constantly making sure its interventions are effective.

One thing I'd also say is that...

need to consider the next level of their growth.

After Diploma I had a plan to join job and help my family, but now I am in one of the famous Engg College i.e R.V.College of engg because of Katalyst, which otherwise would be only in my dream of doing B.E. Thank You katalyst. Every weekend we meet together and many programs will be arranged for us such as Communication skills,Interview skills, Aptitude classes which are really very important in building successful career. We gain lot of knowledge from these classes. One very useful aspect is we all have been assigned a mentors who are giving us the practical scenarios in industry.
