ARC Innovators

ARC Innovators: Apply your expertise. Renew your commitment. Create change. 

ARC Innovators provides experienced professionals with opportunities to apply and expand their skills in a nonprofit setting through pro bono projects with our partner organizations in New York City, New Jersey, and Washington, DC. Innovators are professionals who have significant experience and are ready to contribute to organizations that need their particular skill set for an advanced, short-term project. By bringing their expertise and a fresh perspective to bear on persistent challenges faced by our nonprofit partners, Innovators create lasting change while gaining valuable experience in a nonprofit setting.

Innovators commit to working with organizational leadership on well-defined projects for a period of 2-6 months, usually for a few hours each week. Many projects can be done remotely.
