Shadow Day

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 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.

Shadow Day kicks off with a Networking Breakfast, and continues as students follow along on their host's workday.

Save the date! Shadow Day will be on Friday, October 7, 2016 in Kansas City.
