Jobs That Let You Give a Damn

My goal is to see more people growing more social businesses. Most of you are entrepreneurs, business owners and intrapreneurs working hard to create change. But some of you are looking for your (next) opportunity to do just that. This collection of job lists is for you. This list isn’t exhaustive, but it’s quality.

    Thanks for including the Boston College Center for Corporate Citizenship on your list. We have a job board on our site and it is free to post jobs there, so we welcome submissions. We have also done research on the competencies needed to manage community involvement or corporate citizenship:

    David, Jack, Steve and Susan, thanks for the additional suggestions! They’re great. Susan, I’m so glad you included those links. I’ve also enjoyed the recent publication BCCC released with Net Impact.

    Global Team Players (“GTP”) is a foundation for athletic, professional, and social development. GTP was launched recently, and we are actively recruiting volunteers. At this time, we can offer volunteers a letter of recommendation, the opportunity to define and build the role to fit desired career goals, and some of the world’s best toffee, which is made by the founder’s mother (my mother).

    If you know someone who might be interested in getting involved, please refer them to

    I will also be in NY (March), DC (April), and SF (May). If you are located in these cities, please let me know. I would like to meet you in person!

    This is tremendous, Olivia! Such a great list. I would also add CECP as I believe they post positions as well. And of course, do continue to check the Fenton site since this is all about the work we do.
