Fair Chance is committed to the sustainability and growth of our nonprofit partners – even after the partnership program is completed. Our vibrant alumni network of more than 120 nonprofit organizations has access to the following Network Services offerings:
- Legal: Hogan Lovells, an international law firm, provides pro bono legal services to the nonprofits in our network. Fair Chance acts as a broker for our partners: connecting them to the Hogan Lovell Pro Bono Practice and following up on results.
- Executive Director Learning Community: The Executive Director Learning Community (EDLC) is an opportunity for Executive Directors of current and alumni partners to learn from each other. Learning sessions topics are based on the needs of the network.
- E-Forum: The e-Forum is an online space where Executive Directors of current and alumni partners can easily access the collective knowledge and expertise of the Fair Chance network. Participants share relevant community information like funding and pro bono opportunities, events, resources and articles, and training/workshop announcements.
- Boston Consulting Group Fellows Program: Boston Consulting Group (BCG) is a global management consulting firm and a leading advisor on business strategy. BCG offers a year-long, pro bono consulting engagement, consisting of executive coaching and management consulting support on two or three projects designed to collectively advance the strategic work and/or growth of the alumni organization. Only alumni who have completed the Praxis Partnership can apply for one of these consulting engagements.
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic and the data collected from our Care Calls Initiative, Fair Chance has created two services for alumni: SPACE and TIME. SPACE (a Supportive Place for Answers, Coaching, and Exploring Ideas) serves as virtual office hours and gives Executive Directors a 20-minute session with a Capacity Building Specialist. TIME (Three sessions for Issue exploration, Mapping out solutions, and Establishing your plan) gives nonprofit leaders three, 90-minute virtual sessions to work through a challenge facing their organizations. SPACE and TIME are open to alumni of Fair Chance’s DC programs.
If you have questions regarding the services above, please contact Kristen Barney, Program Development Specialist.
In addition, Fair Chance offers our Impact Academy Program to alumni of the Praxis Partnership. This program gives organizations the opportunity to enhance or design programs that result in life-changing outcomes for children, youth, and families. Learn more.
