Third Sector Capital Partners
Summer Manager



Third Sector is an innovative nonprofit consultancy redefining how government funds effective social services. We help our government and community clients connect funding with data on social outcomes in order to solve pressing challenges such as economic mobility for all and the well-being of children. We work to define impact, draw actionable insights from data, and drive resources towards outcomes-oriented government. Since 2011, we have worked with 40 communities and transitioned $480 million in public funding to social programs that measurably improve lives. Our team of more than 40 employees works out of offices in San Francisco and Boston, and is united by our core values (Respect, Rigor, Resourcefulness, Results, and Reflection) and our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion.



We are seeking highly driven and passionate candidates in MBA, MPA, MSW, JD, or other degree programs to join our fast-paced firm for a 10-week summer internship in Boston or San Francisco. During your summer with us, you will work on client engagements and you may also be given the opportunity to assist with special initiatives that drive the firm’s growth.

Now imagine that on your first day as a Summer Manager at Third Sector you are staffed on a six- to eight-week “Rapid Assessment” project for a health and human services agency based in Boston. You are helping the agency develop recommendations to improve a healthcare program for high-risk pregnant women, with the goal of improving health and wellness outcomes for mother and child. Your typical day might begin with a check-in with your Project Lead to review your upcoming presentation to a group of agency representatives during a workshop focused on outcomes-oriented program design. You would then travel to the agency and facilitate that workshop, debriefing with your team after to highlight key takeaways and determine next steps. Your day ends with grabbing coffee with your Career Manager to discuss feedback received from your team members and your progress on internship goals you’ve set. The next day, you may work with your team to develop new incentive structures for achieving improved outcomes for high-risk pregnant women and their babies.

At Third Sector, every day presents new and exciting challenges. Please visit our website for additional examples of our outcomes-oriented work with communities.
