Want to help build a dynamic platform for Endeavor, which will allow entrepreneurs to connect with mentors and each other to share business insights and give feedback to each other to help their businesses grow? Interested in working with the Riverkeeper, New York’s leading clean water advocate, on community action and advocacy or with the Women’s Housing and Economic Development Corporation (WHEDCo) implementing sustainability initiatives in South Bronx housing buildings?
