 NYIT Consultants for the Public Good  
Mission - NYIT Consultants for the Public Good is a collegial and collaborative project of multi-disciplinary NYIT students, alumni, faculty and staff that provides a broad range of expertise to nonprofits, public sectors and corporations committed to serving the public good. NYIT Consultants for the Public Good support area non-profits, government organizations and NGO’s doing work to improve the local and/or global communities. Corporations seeking to strengthen their philanthropic efforts and community relationships may also apply. Our consultants work in teams to examine and evaluate our clients’ community based needs. They then outline potential solutions in a formal proposal that once implemented, will advance the client organization’s program goals. All work is provided pro bono.

 
  How it Works
Students and alumni apply to the program. Community Clients submit a project. Faculty members sign up to serve as Senior Consultants. All parties are invited to an opening presentation where community clients pitch their projects to consultants. Consultants identify the project they feel best suited for and then meet with the client. Consultants provide the client with a resume and the client has one week to select a team. Senior consultants introduce themselves and provide teams a synopsis of their areas of expertise and core strengths that could assist the teams in their projects. They also provide contact information to program participants.

Once teams are selected, a lead consultant is identified for each team and the projects begin. Teams are given a timeframe in which they have to complete the project (anywhere from 1-15 weeks). A project form must be completed and submitted to Career Services within the first week of beginning a project. Each project concludes with the submission of a written report documenting the project deliverables as identified by the client, and a presentation. A copy of the report must be submitted to Career Services. Consulting teams and community clients will be required to complete a program evaluation which will be made available online.

At the end of the term, all groups will present their project presentations and reports to an audience of community clients, senior consultants and NYIT community members. Senior consultants will choose the best proposals.
