YCore | Social Impact Fellowship for Young Professionals

YCore is a social impact fellowship that helps you make a difference today while building tools for tomorrow. We partner teams of young professionals with community-based nonprofits to tackle important projects.

How it works:
  • Work closely with a local nonprofit and four peers on a strategically significant project
  • Grow your skills and perspective on community issues
  • Learn about design thinking, fundraising, nonprofit management, social systems, and more
  • Join a lifelong community of like-minded change-makers and friends
We are accepting applications for the following roles:
Project Leads
  • Partner with a local nonprofit to identify and scope a strategically significant, capacity-building project.
  • Lead a team of 3-4 peers as they execute the project over the course of 4 months.
  • Grow your project management and leadership skills.
  • Build strong relationships in the nonprofit sector and join a lifelong community of like-minded change-makers and friends.
  • Learn how to fundraise by meeting a $2000 financial commitment to YCore. We give you all the tools to succeed; no previous experience necessary
