In my interview with Dan Pallotta we discuss a his newly designed program called “Change Course“. I have interviewed Dan previously about his book entitled “Uncharitable-How Restraints on Non-Profits Undermine Their Potential.” Dan Pallotta has been involved in lifting up the profile of non-profits for years. At age 21 he organized a bike ride across America to raise awareness about world hunger, he also launched a for profit enterprise that was responsible for developing AID’s rides as well as the 3-Day Brest Cancer walks. Needless to say Dan Pallotta is not stranger to the world of non-profit.
Dan realized that many people are torn mentally and emotionally about where to spend their time. So many of us want to help in the non-profit sector, yet we feel that we are not doing enough or don’t have the time. We want to know how to make the transition and feel comfortable with our decisions. This boot camp for idealists, activists and social entrepreneurs and anyone exploring how to make a good living and a big difference will help anyone seeking to have fulfilling work while making a living. In Change Course, Dan and his team are going to guide the attendees and inform them about: 1) the pros and cons of a non-profit career 2) making a difference in every moment 3) duty and responsibility vs. joy and opportunity 4) social enterprise vs. social entrepreneurship 5) maximizing the impact of personal philanthropy and much more.
If you are like most people you may want to get involved with charitable work, but could or would you every make a career of it? Dan will help guide attendees in determining what their options are, as well as help resolve the dilemmas that many face in making non-profit work a career.
