We mobilize college students to leverage their education, digital fluency, mentorship networks, and knowledge as customers to empower small business owners and drive change in their communities.

Consult Your Community started out in an undergraduate Leadership Seminar at UC Berkeley. Then in about 6 months it scaled to 15 universities across the country. Find out where why small businesses are partnering with college students.
Leading community growth would not be possible without strong, compassionate professionals and students eager to turn experience into impact. Does this sound like you?
Meaningful contribution and service is often followed by deep learning for our volunteers as well as our small business clients. Want to hear how communities are coming together to live out the American Dream?
Service does not need to be about handouts. Service is about collaboration. We strive to create inclusive collaboration within communities by mobilizing leaders who create results using empathy, active listening, and hard work.
