RESIDENCY IN SOCIAL ENTERPRISE and SUMMER FELLOWS programs 2009-2010 program year Strengthening organizations today. Developing leaders for tomorrow.

New Sector’s Residency in Social Enterprise and Summer Fellows Programs
New Sector’s Residency in Social Enterprise and Summer Fellows programs give social impact organizations the opportunity to deepen their impact by leveraging the top talent from the academic, business, and nonprofit sectors. Through participation in the Residency and Summer Fellows programs, today’s leading organizations gain full-time access to the enterprising minds of tomorrow, as well as support from professional services firms including Accenture, Bain & Company, The Bridgespan Group, The Boston Consulting Group, Deloitte, and McKinsey & Company. Residents and Fellows work on-site at hosting organizations for the duration of the program to produce
immediate results and enhance long-term capacity.
In the current challenging economic environment, New Sector helps your organization accelerate social change by providing you with the talent and tools you need to take your impact to the next level.
Becoming a New Sector Host Site There is no “application process” to become a Host Site organization. New Sector works collaboratively with key staff at potential Host Site organizations to scope strategic projects critical to their individual missions and to create position descriptions and preliminary workplans for each Resident or Fellow. Host Sites contribute $35,000 per Resident and $3,000 per Summer Fellow. These fees allow New Sector to enroll each Resident and Fellow as an AmeriCorps member and to cover basic costs including living stipends and benefits for participants, training and materials, and New Sector program management staff and consultant advisor support. All Residents and Fellows are on New Sector’s payroll.
HOW DO THE PROGRAMS WORK? Selecting your Resident or Fellow Based on the agreed upon position description, New Sector will match you with the most qualified candidate who is also the best fit for your organizational culture. Each potential Host Site organization will participate in an individualized interview process with Resident and Fellow candidates in order to make a mutual match. Once matched, a signed contract and the first quarterly payment are due to New Sector.
Over the course of the program Residents and Fellows serve full-time, on-site at Host Site organizations throughout the program, except when they are participating in training or reflection activities. Participants meet weekly with their consultant advisors. Each New Sector program begins with an intensive kick-off training for participants and wraps up with a dedicated reflection period. Additionally, Residents and Fellows participate in biweekly trainings (one afternoon every two weeks) from 3-6pm. Residency in Social Enterprise (1 year): September August Summer Fellows (10 weeks): June August
WHY HOST A RESIDENT OR FELLOW? ...because hosting a Resident or Fellow is an accessible, affordable, and effective way for organizations to prioritize strategic initiatives with minimal strain on precious resources. • Your Resident or Fellow will be exceptionally bright,
analytical, a self-starter, and a proven leader • Residents and Fellows are prepared to hit the ground running
...because New Sector provides unparalleled professional advising, training, and support. • Each Resident and Fellow is paired with a consultant advisor from one of our partner firms - including Accenture, Bain & Company,
The Boston Consulting Group, The Bridgespan Group, Deloitte , and McKinsey & Company - to provide experienced support in strategic processes and to help your organization “get things done” throughout the duration of the program
...because New Sector’s “Mini-MBA” curriculum culls best practices from leading business schools, professional services firms, and social sector practitioners to increase your organization’s impact. • Created with input from top practitioners and academics, including notable contribution from Harvard Business School faculty • Covers topics such as accounting and performance management, finance, leadership and organizational behavior, marketing, and technology and operations management • Tools and techniques tailored specifically to be leveraged by social impact organizations ready to further their impact
Our Residents and Fellows and their consultant advisors share a common desire to make a difference through experiences that will be both inspiring and intellectually challenging. Though each participant brings individual experiences and qualifications to the group, we strive to bring together a pool of candidates that seeks to learn from, as well as contribute to, their Host Site organizations and their peers.
WHO IS THE TYPICAL RESIDENT OR FELLOW? New Sector does not recruit for any particular educational or experiential background. Instead, we look for applicants who have demonstrated a strong commitment to civic engagement, proven their ability to take initiative and achieve measurable results, and who can communicate and collaborate effectively. By creating a diverse cohort of analytical, action-oriented minds with a common goal of furthering social impact, we ensure our ability to find outstanding candidates for any Host Site organization.
