WHAT IT TAKES.
CCT volunteers are a special group. They are experienced professionals who volunteer to leverage their business skills to define, research, analyze and solve our clients’ issues.
They have worked in many industries and have diverse functional expertise in areas such as marketing, operations, organizational behavior, finance, general management, business development, strategic planning, and consulting.
Their years of business experience range from 5 to 50.
Some are employed full-time; others are part-time workers, stay-at-home parents, between jobs and retirees.

"Working on the CCT Beacon Hill Village project was a wonderful experience for me. Not only was I able to utilize my MBA skills and knowledge within the context of a meaningful nonprofit consulting experience, but I was also able to build relationships with an interesting and talented group of individuals. It was a pleasure to work with people who were committed, smart and passionate about their pursuits. I truly feel that our work made an impact, and I know that I learned a great deal along the way.
— Elizabeth A., CCT Volunteer and former Board Member
"Following the CCT project, I was invited to join the Board of Boston City Singers and am now serving as Vice Chair.
All CCT projects have been interesting and challenging in different ways. I've enjoyed digging in and understanding the customers, competitors and industries in which they operate."
— Johanna Musselman, CCT Volunteer
