With support from the Corporation for National and Community Service, New Sector runs two AmeriCorps programs through which we recruit, train and support diverse, exceptionally talented emerging leaders to serve nonprofit clients. Our Program Participants provide capacity building service with our host sites, while gaining training and support for their professional skills.
- The New Sector Residency in Social Enterprise (RISE) is an 11-month program operating from September – July. Residents are recent graduates and emerging professionals with up to five years of work experience after graduating from college.
- The New Sector Summer Fellowship is an 11-week summer program operating from June – August. Summer Fellows are undergraduate students, recent college graduates, and MBA candidates.
Our Residents and Fellows serve full-time with nonprofit host sites in a variety of social impact areas. Read more about our focus areas.
Capacity Building for Nonprofits:
Residents’ and Fellows’ service can include many different types of projects, all of which provide greater capacity for nonprofits to deliver on their missions, with lasting impact beyond the Program Participant’s service terms.
