I was introduced to Upwardly Global two years ago through a New Sector Residency in Social Enterprise. I'm always incredibly impressed with not only the exceptional care and thoughtfulness that this organization provides to each of its job candidates, but the how this mission is manifested in every aspect of the company, whether through grassroots, on-the-ground action, or in the back end of the administration.

It's a pleasure to be updated on how they consistently affect change in the community.

Upwardly Global is a great non-profit for new immigrants in the US who have not yet established their own professional network.

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

their ability to connect job seekers with mentors in their field/background.

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

their dedication and drive to make sure the job seeker is actively job searching.

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

completely friendly and aware of the US job search.

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

expand it's offices to reach immigrant professionals in other areas of the US.
