Community Consulting Teams of Boston (CCT) amplifies the impact of Boston-area nonprofits through pro bono management consulting projects performed by teams of experienced MBAs from top-tier business schools.
Come learn more about what’s coming up in January! We’re holding our final general information session for new and returning volunteers on Tuesday October 22 in Wellesley. If you would like to attend, please RSVP to Julie Rowe at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Tuesday, October 22nd from 7:00 pm to 8:30pm Whole Foods Market – Community Room 442 Washington Street, Wellesley RSVP deadline: October 19
Additional information: Our volunteer consultants: New volunteers are generally graduates of top-25 business schools or have an MBA (or relevant advanced degree) from another school plus relevant experience, such as high level involvement with a similar organization in a different city or a professional consulting background. A current MBA candidate is not eligible to volunteer as a consultant until he or she has received his or her degree. The CCT Experience: Volunteer consultants receive their project team assignments in December and will likely meet with their teams before the official kick-off in January. Project Managers make sure the project stays on track and volunteers are contributing about 12-16 hours of time per month until the cycle finishes with final presentations to the client in late spring. CCT hosts a thank-you party in June with clients and volunteers to officially wrap up the cycle.
Key Dates: November 1, 2013: Volunteer applications due (new and returning volunteers alike) Mid November 2013: Volunteers receive slate of projects and send their preferences to CCT Early December 2013: Volunteers receive project assignment January 12, 2014: CCT Kick-Off Meeting
The November 1 application deadline has passed. Interested volunteers can still submit an application and we will place them on a reserve list should teams find themselves in need of an additional person going forward.
The next step is project preference emails. Keep an eye out in your inbox for these emails, in which you can tell us your top four project selections! We’re aiming to inform volunteers of their project teams by early December.
It was great to meet new volunteers and old friends at the CCT information sessions! Thanks to all who came out to meet us. If you haven’t already, please fill out an application for the 2014 project cycle by November 1. We will contact everyone who has completed an application and let you choose your top projects in mid-November, and you’ll find out your team by early December. Please contact us if you have any more questions!
