dreamcatchers_brainstormingHBS Community Partners Brainstorming Session with Gilead House

Volunteer for two hours to help this Bay Area non-profit solve a critical organization challenge!


Brainstorming sessions are designed to give HBS alumni the opportunity to make an impact in an energizing, two-hour session focused on solving a dilemma facing a Bay Area non-profit organization — similar to analyzing a case at HBS.  Join a group of fellow alumni over lunch or dinner to learn about the non-profit and provide meaningful advice.  See description below, and sign up here.  (Non-HBS alumni with business skills are welcomed to apply.)

Gilead House Gilead House transforms the lives of mothers and their children through empowering life skills programs, mentoring and transitional housing that will lead ultimately to economic stability.  Founded in 1999, 100% of women last year have maintained consistent employment, and 75% have almost doubled their wages in the last year.  Given the demand for its program exceeds its capacity, it would like to hear ideas on how to scale its program in Marin county and beyond, operationally and financially.

HBS Community Partners, a program of the Harvard Business School Association of Northern California, offers pro bono consulting and business advisory services to Bay Area 501c3 non-profits who want expert help in growing their impact.  For over 30 years, over 1,000 HBS alumni have volunteered to support over 350 Bay area non-profits with strategic planning, marketing strategies, scaling, new business plan development, and more.  If you know of a non-profit who could benefit from pro bono support, go to www.hbscp.org to learn more and submit an inquiry.  If you are you an alum interested in joining the movement and making an impact at a non-profit, also go to www.hbscp.org to learn more about the skills we are seeking.
