About Us

Net Impact is the world’s best training ground for the next generation of change agents.

Our programs—delivered from our headquarters in Oakland, CA, as well as globally through our 300+ chapters—connect our members to the skills, experiences and people that will allow them to have the greatest impact.

One hundred thousand strong, we 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.

What we do

The problems our world faces are huge, from inequality to feeding nine billion to climate change. What if we could mobilize more people to dedicate more time on the job to making an impact? We believe this shift is essential to creating a more sustainable world.

Every day, Net Impact empowers a new generation to drive social and environmental change on campus and throughout their careers. We provide the network and resources to inspire emerging leaders to build successful "impact careers" – either by working in jobs dedicated to change or by bringing a social and environmental lens to traditional business roles.
