PennPAC Volunteer Teams
PennPAC recruits volunteers from a deep talent pool of the 40,000 Penn alumni in the NYC and Philadelphia areas. Volunteers are grouped into balanced and diverse project teams of six, based on the capabilities of the alums and the needs of the client, to undertake an 8-10 week strategic consulting engagement.
What happens when you cross a Wharton undergrad with a College grad and a Penn Engineer? Consulting nirvana.
PennPAC consulting engagements address specific strategic client challenges and can cover one of several fields, including: strategy, marketing, finance, management, accounting, business development, budgeting and technology. The projects have well-defined scopes with tangible deliverables geared towards creating an actionable set of recommendations for each client. PennPAC's clients benefit from outside perspectives and access to skill sets that may not exist within their organizations. For more information review our detailed case studies and read about our past projects.
As an alternative to consulting engagements, ImPACt events are one-night, high-impact opportunities to help a nonprofit. Whether we work with the constituents of one of our nonprofit consulting clients—like our mock college interview night with Renaissance Youth Center’s South Bronx high school seniors—or perform “deep dives”—like our marketing/branding event in partnership with Harlem Business Alliance—ImPACt is a chance for Penn alumni to make a big difference in the lives of others in just one night. See Events & News for more information on our next ImPACt event.
PennPAC undertakes a new slate of projects twice per year in NYC and Philadelphia.
