​You can Join us for a month, a semester, or longer. You can focus on your professional specialty or your favorite cause.

Work Here or Remotely
You can work in our Manhattan office (very conveniently located at 7th Avenue and 33 Street) or remotely.

What We Do
More and more people, tired of buying and receiving yet more stuff, are showing their love in a more meaningful way. They honor births, birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, and graduations with donations made in a friend’s name. Until now, it has been too difficult for nonprofits to offer the requisite gift-like experience (tangible charitable opportunities, wish lists & registries, and personalized printed greeting cards). Now, ChangingThePresent.org makes it easy. In fact, the New York Times called us "an amazon.com of the nonprofit world."

What You Will Gain from the Experience
Join us for your alternative break. You will:
Make a big impact in the world. You will help channel to nonprofits addressing your favorite causes some of the $450 billion Americans spend each year on presents. That will enable them to do their important work.
Use your skills, experience, knowledge, creativity and talent.
Assume responsibility and take a leadership role.
Learn a tremendous amount.
Work with great people from around the world and have a great time.
Enhance your resume with a record of achievement and community service.

Focus on Your Field of Study or Your Favorite Cause
You can focus on your professional field of studies, including Human Resources (HR), graphics, marketing, social media, communications, finance, business, tech (computer science, information technology, etc.), supply chain management, or accounting.
You can also focus on your favorite cause, including any of those listed below.
