At ProInspire, we are dedicated to building the next generation of nonprofit leaders who will change the world. We are currently recruiting top professionals with 2-5 years of business experience to be a part of our flagship program, the ProInspire Fellowship. This highly competitive program offers targeted positions with leading nonprofits, monthly trainings with a cohort of peers, a coach, and a network to support career growth. Fellows spend one year working in an analytical, operational, marketing or strategic role at a nonprofit organization. After the Fellowship, Fellows engage with our growing community of alumni to continue investing in the social sector.

Every day, ProInspire Fellows address critical social issues like empowering youth in our communities, immunizing children in developing countries, and expanding financial access all over the world.  ProInspire Fellows make a real difference by using their passion, skills, and experience for social impact.

ProFellow recently featured ProInspire Fellow Crystal Moore. As a ProInspire Fellow, Crystal worked for DC Public Schools:

Working in the Office of Secondary School Transformation at DC Public Schools, I helped to drive the implementation of the school district’s reform strategy by improving the districts effectiveness through a rigorous use of data. Through my work as a ProInspire Fellow, I further strengthened my core belief that all students, regardless of their social-economic background should have access to a quality education system.
