The MIT Sloan Alumni Club of Boston is working with Community Consulting Teams (CCT) to support the success of local non-profits.

February 4 2013 UPDATE:  

Success! First Ever Sloanie Team Volunteers for Community Consulting Teams (CCT)

Thank you Sloanies who participated in the Sloan Alumni Club’s Career Series event, “Volunteer Consulting Opportunities with Boston Area Non-Profits.” CCT recently kicked off 12 new projects for 2013 providing consulting services to health, education and social service non-profits.

The Sloan project, led by Project Sponsor, Tricia Craig ('97) and Project Managers Lia Cavalcante Griffiths (’10) and Mary Barton ('98) also includes Leonard Francis (‘09) V Prabhakar (‘07) and Rachel Theran ('03). The Sloan team will be working for the Massachusetts Horticultural Society, an organization founded in 1929 that is dedicated to encouraging the science and practice of horticulture. Located in the historic Elm Bank Reservation in Wellesley, Massachusetts Horticulture's education center and gardens are a place of beauty, discovery, quiet reflection and appreciation of garden design.

The six-month CCT project will focus on helping Mass Hort develop new revenue streams to enable them to continue to deliver excellence in its educational mission and Elm Bank stewardship.
