Executive Service Corps' mission is to make nonprofits successful. We do this by building leadership, strategy and solutions.
Executive Service Corps of Chicago (ESC) is a nonprofit organization serving as a consulting resource to more than 100 Chicago area nonprofits and public agencies each year, helping them to reach their greatest potential for service to their community.
ESC is distinguished by its unique cadre of nearly 200 trained consultants who bring experience and skills earned in life long corporate and professional careers. These individuals volunteer with ESC to give back to their community in a meaningful way.
When I found ESC, I was really excited. Here was an organization that was helping nonprofits deal with the very same challenges that I’d been dealing with in the business world—struggling to do more with less, experiencing incredible change, managing the people part of the business. As a volunteer, I’ve found ESC’s nonprofit clients to be open, welcoming, and grateful for our presence. Helping nonprofits be the best they can be. That’s what ESC is all about. And that’s what makes volunteering with ESC so enriching.
ESC gives me a chance to work with a group of friendly smart experienced former (and current) executives, use my skills from my business career, learn a lot of new skills, and do good for organizations that help a lot of people. What's not to like?
ESC has a wonderful Training Program. They really want you be a very effective volunteer and provide a lot of help and encouragement. If you want to feel appreciated and needed, ESC is the place to be.
