About Us

Net Impact mobilizes new generations to use their skills and careers to drive transformational social and environmental change.

Many people want to make a difference, but turning good intentions into tangible impact can be hard. Net Impact is an accelerator. Our programs—delivered from our headquarters, as well as globally through our student and professional chapters—give our members the skills, experiences and connections that will allow them to have the greatest impact now and throughout their careers.

Net Impact is a global community of students and professionals who want to become the most effective change agents they can be. Over 100,000 strong, our emerging leaders take on social challenges, protect the environment, invent new products and orient business toward the greater good. In short, we help our members turn their passions into a lifetime of world-changing action.

We stand out because:


  • We work with both university students and professionals. Our community includes students in 2 and 4-year colleges; graduate students and emerging leaders in the workplace
  • Our programs focus on preparing people to build their skills and find their path to make a difference through their careers
  • We believe that the business sector is a critical part of driving social and environmental change, and thus engage with a variety of big and small companies on our events and programs

You can get involved by:


  • Attending one of our local or national events, which provides an opportunity for you to learn about the latest trends and most inspiring stories in social change.
  • Joining a local chapter to build skills, make connections and gain experiences with local like-minded communities committed to making a difference in the world.
  • Going deeper to develop skills to stand out as an impact leader by participating in our leadership programming including challenges, fellowships and chapter leadership opportunities
  • Finding a career that makes an impact. Our online career site can get you started, and you can utilize your local chapter network to make valuable connections.
