NFP Connections first started in 2016. The goal of this event was to connect U of A students with local NFPs. All students were welcomed to sign up for an facility tour. Employees of the organization guide students through the building and explain to them the services that they provide to members of the community. Each tour also puts a strong emphasis on the operations of the organization from behind the scenes. This is a special feature that allows all participants to see what it would be like to work for an NFP as a career. If you are interested in pursuing a career in the Not-for-Profit industry or learning in depth about the work of such organizations this event is for you!
