Support for nonprofits

We match PwC professionals with nonprofit organizations to help provide support where your organization needs it most.

Support preparing college students for future careers

We believe access to career opportunities should be a right, not a privilege, which is why we launched Access Your Potential - a commitment to help address the opportunity and employment gaps in society and create a more equitable future for Black and Latinx college students, whatever field of study. Explore that and other PwC programs and resources aimed at helping tomorrow’s workforce stand out in a competitive job market and advance their future careers.

Access Your Potential is an ecosystem of learning and support for Black and Latinx college students as they begin to prepare for their future careers. What can students explore when they sign up?

  • Career Readiness curriculum to help students better understand who they are, focus on where they want to go, and consider how to approach the career search process;
  • Digital Skills curriculum to help students embrace new mindsets and ways of working, harness the power of data through automation and visualization, and understand what responsible and ethical use of technology means in business;
  • Our Mentoring program where students can sign up to be part of a pod comprised of peers and PwC professionals focused on building community and supporting them along their career journey (mentor matching occurs at the beginning of each month!); and
  • Career exploration resources to explore different opportunities!

Mentoring resources

It can be comforting for students to connect virtually with a mentor or trusted resource to discuss their educational and future career goals. Through platforms like CareerVillage.orgiMentor and UPchieve, students can ask questions answered by professionals across the US, including PwC.
