Serve the Public Good outside of public office.
Lead in a growing non-profit sector.

Non-profits are no longer an afterthought in the U.S. economy; in fact, they represent 10% of the domestic workforce. At the helm of an NPO or non-governmental organization, you can help fill the important service gaps in healthcare, education, and community outreach that the public and private sectors can’t.

Mix the core foundations of public administration with imaginative fundraising techniques. Explore your personal approach to management. Bring an entrepreneurial approach to social causes.
