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. To learn more, email Jennifer Yap, ImPACt Chair.

“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

“It was an amazing opportunity to spend some dedicated time thinking about this program and to hear insights from such a creative and thoughtful group. We can’t thank you enough and we are excited to get to work on next steps.”

- Caroline Curatolo, General Manager, Orpheus Chamber Orchestra

Past ImPACt Events

Since 2012, PennPAC has held 19 ImPACt events, supporting the work of 22 nonprofit clients.  Take a look at our clients and event topics from the past year and read more about our very first virtual event!

Date: November 19, 2019

Client: Upwardly Global (UpGlo)

Project: PennPAC worked with constituents from UpGlo to provide mock interviews and resume reviews. UpGlo was so impressed with PennPAC volunteers’ commitment and engagement at the event, as well as the deep connections that they made with their clients.

Date: February 25, 2020

Clients: 24 Hours Plays & COPE Foundation

Project: PennPAC worked with these two growing nonprofit organizations to provide an external perspective on some of their key strategic issues, including feedback on their mission statements, communication and marketing, and revenue sources. While these clients have very different missions, they learned so much from each other and even discussed a future collaboration!

Date: April 28, 2020

Clients: Bay Ridge Center, Grace Institute, & JustLeadership

Project: PennPAC worked with each of these three nonprofit organizations in mini-consultancies to offer feedback on new and developing organizational initiatives as well as to respond to urgent needs directly related to the COVID-19 crisis. Our first attempt at a large scale Zoom event went off without a hitch! Both volunteers and clients enjoyed the experience and we look forward to continuing virtual programming.
