The Phillips Brooks House Association (PBHA) along with the Harvard Club of Boston announced a new nonprofit management fellowship for graduating seniors of the College at a reception Monday (March 3).
Beginning with the class of 2008, each year a graduating senior from Harvard College will have an opportunity to develop his or her nonprofit management knowledge and skills through a one-year internship with PBHA. Through a mentor relationship with PBHA’s Class of 1955 Executive Director Gene Corbin, the fellow will have opportunities for structured learning and hands-on experience in the various facets of nonprofit management. At the completion of this internship, the fellow will be in a position to obtain a role within an existing nonprofit agency or to start a new organization.
In addition to providing funding to make this much-needed internship possible, members of the Harvard Club of Boston will contribute additional expertise and support.
“PBHA has numerous alumni who founded or serve in nonprofit organizations. These alumni frequently express that the nonprofit field is difficult to navigate with fewer resources to develop the knowledge and skills of future leaders,” remarked Corbin. “I strongly believe that providing such an opportunity for a graduating senior each year in a manner that will also better support the public service efforts of students at PBHA makes incredible sense. We greatly appreciate the Harvard Club of Boston for making this exciting new opportunity possible.”
