Careers in the Nonprofit Sector

This program explores the diversity of opportunities available in the nonprofit sector, a part of the job market that includes advocacy groups, community organizations, and nongovernmental associations. Viewers meet three people who linked their passions to their careers: Damon landed an on-air position at a radio station, Gillian works with a seagoing eco-warrior group, and Erica has a managerial role providing mental health services. The video explains that a range of job types can be found in the nonprofit world, including public relations, tech support, and accounting. Although paid employment is the goal, the benefits of volunteering are emphasized. A viewable/printable worksheet is available online. (17 minutes)
