Shadow Day

Shadow Day matches college students interested in the sector with local nonprofit professionals for a day of learning and networking. The event allows undergraduate and graduate students to experience a workday in their desired profession, and helps students to develop a variety of connections in the nonprofit community. 


In 2015, over 140 students from 20 local colleges and universities participated in Shadow Day. You want to be a part of this event!

This year, Shadow Day is scheduled for Friday, October 7, 2016.

For Students

Are you a college student ready to change the world with a career in the nonprofit sector? Shadow Day gives you the ultimate head start! Shadow Day kicks off with a Networking Breakfast, and continues as students follow along their Host's workday at a nonprofit organization.

The best part? You get to pick your Nonprofit Host! After you have completed registration, you will receive an email with a link to select your top five choices for a Nonprofit Host. Every effort will be made to match each student with one of his/her top choices.
