PennPAC’s Coaching program provides targeted guidance to start-up or small nonprofits. Organizations are matched with our experienced volunteer-consultants for one or several 1-hour virtual sessions so that they can receive the support they need to effectively lead and become confident decision-makers.

Many of our Coaching clients are President’s Engagement Prize winners or otherwise connected to Penn. Serving a wide range of beneficiaries, the PennPAC Coaching program prioritizes grassroots organizations that are working to improve their local communities.

We are excited to grow the program and engage additional volunteers in 2021! To learn more, email Susan Pechman, Coaching Chair.
