Exploring Nonprofit Career Opportunities
Using the Action Without Borders/Idealist.org website, students become more aware of nonprofit organizations, including job opportunities. They may practice filling out a resume/application, and prepare for a job interview.
The purpose of this lesson is to have learners name and recognize nonprofit organizations within the local community utilizing the Idealist.org web site. Learners will categorize nonprofits and describe how they help or enhance the community.
This lesson was adapted from a 3-5 grade Learning to Give unit "Nonprofits are Necessary" found at /units/nonprofits-are-necessary-3-5.
Learners will recognize different job opportunities available in the nonprofit sector and understand that these different jobs require specific interests, abilities and skills.
