Job opportunities are hard to come by for young college graduates pursuing careers as changemakers, especially during a pandemic. The Algernon Sydney Sullivan Foundation plans to give them a head start with the upcoming Social Entrepreneurship Opportunity Fair, to be held online from 6-8 p.m. (ET), Monday, Nov. 16.

The event, which is free and open to all recent college graduates or current students, takes place in conjunction with Global Entrepreneurship Week, scheduled for Nov. 16-22, 2020.

The Social Entrepreneurship Opportunity Fair will feature virtual “booths” manned by social-impact organization leaders around the nation. Some of the groups partnering on the event, to both share opportunities and promote it, include:

Attendees of the Social Entrepreneurship Opportunity Fair will have the chance to connect with social-impact organizations offering internships and jobs and meet representatives from socially minded companies looking to hire. They will also network and interact with social entrepreneurs to receive guidance and feedback.

“We’ve heard from lots of students who are struggling to find opportunities to get started in their changemaking careers,” said Spud Marshall, the Sullivan Foundation’s director of student engagement and organizer of the event. “We’re going to lean on the collective resources across our Sullivan network to help students connect with internships, jobs, education and service opportunities.”

The event will also serve as the culmination to the Sullivan Foundation’s Ignite Masterclass program, which launched this fall. Ignite Masterclasses offer weekly workshops and networking sessions taught by social innovation leaders from around the country.

Social innovators and business leaders who want to participate in the event can fill out a survey here with details on the opportunity they’re offering. If your organization would like to help promote the event, email Marshall at to learn more and to receive resources for sharing to your network.
