campusCATALYST is a fantastic organization. By exposing students at Chicago's top universities to the trends and challenges of the social sector, campusCATALYST inspires young talent to commit to community service. In the long run, this will help to address the nonprofit leadership gap already plaguing the sector. In the short run, campusCATALYST advances Obama's national call to service and serves as a connector for schools, students, nonprofits, foundations, businesses, and industry experts. In an increasingly fragmented society, this connection and commitment is exactly what the sector needs.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
the students' engagement in the classroom and commitment beyond graduation.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
the students' enthusiasm and the opportunity to meet people from a variety of backgrounds.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
highly competent and devoted to the mission.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
expand to universities across the country, build a summer program, host a conference, and hire more staff.
When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
