One Night. Huge ImPACt.

Whether we work with the constituents of one of our nonprofit clients—like our mock college interview night with Renaissance Youth Center’s South Bronx high school seniors—or perform “deep dives”—like our marketing/branding event in partnership with Harlem Business Alliance — ImPACt events are a chance for Penn alumni to make a big difference in the lives of others in just one night. Learn more about our next ImPACt event.

“Words can not say how much we appreciate every moment spent with PennPAC. We have a much clearer picture of issues with our branding and marketing, and we better understand some of the strengths and weaknesses of our program.”

- Bervin Harris, Executive Director, Renaissance Youth Center

“The program you have established and your organizational structure are impressive. Thank you for creating such an imaginative and organized opportunity for the Penn community.”

- Robin Beckett, Volunteer, Renaissance Youth Center

“The ImPACt session was an invaluable tool. It showed us how to build on the YWCA’s program development to ensure our growth in thought leadership and activism.”

- Don Vogel, Chief Development Officer, YWCA of NY

“I thought the event was a tremendous success. The kids were wonderful… one of my kids seemed to have his mind open up right before me. It was a wonderful feeling.”

- Wiktoria Bielska, Volunteer, Renaissance Youth Center
