Careers in Nonprofits

Careers In Nonprofits logo

We give heartfelt support to all things nonprofit.

How it started

By 33, Nurys Pedersen "had made it."

A Vice President in Washington DC, her career was colored by promotions, welcomed earnings, and a desk in the corner office.

But a decade in, feeling unfulfilled and searching for more, Nurys asked herself, "what could I be missing?"

So by 34, with little income, and no staff, Nurys founded: Careers In Nonprofits.

Leaving everything behind, she moved out of DC, and found a little office in downtown Chicago.

Upon arrival, Nurys began calling up local nonprofits. They were making a difference. And she asked if they needed help. They said, yes. So then, she started to recruit.

This time, her work felt different.

Today, Nurys loves what she does. And her #ILoveMyJob🧡 mission has helped over 700 nonprofit missions find passionate, hard-working people across the country.

The Result? 

Careers In Nonprofits delivers heart-driven, award-winning staffing.

We understand that staffing a nonprofit organization requires collaboration. By partnering with HR departments, nonprofit CEO's, and Hiring Managers across the country, we help advance missions that promote a healthier society. Because when we connect professionals to causes they love serving, we enable people to do their best work.

When you partner with CNP, you receive an effective, timely, and accurate hiring process. We understand the importance of hiring the right employees for your organization the first time around. For over 10 years, we have partnered with nonprofits like yours in Chicago, Washington DC, San Francisco and beyond.

Robert’s Rules Made Simple Testimonials:

Adam Simons, City of Oakland Auditor: Susan's introduction to Robert's Rules of Order was one of the most meaningful workshops I've ever had the pleasure of participating in. Her mastery of the subject matter was only second to her engaging, substantive, and thought-provoking presentation. I thought she was joking when she promised to make Robert's Rules personal to me -- she was not. I was blown away and would recommend this workshop to anybody who wants to better understand and relate to Robert's Rules of Order as a tool to build better more high functioning TEAMs.


Ron Paul, Congressman And Presidential Candidate: I think Susan Leahy does a terrific job simplifying Robert’s Rules and her course is the best resource I've come across. I think it's a fantastic resource. If you like the program, I recommend you purchase access for your group"


Bruce Devlin, Vice President, SMPTE Standards: Thank you, Susan! That was outstanding. You somehow managed to reach inside my brain and turn the jumbled Roberts Rules words that I have read over the years into useful knowledge. I'm looking forward to the next instalment.


Lindsey Douglas, Show Announcer: Susan! This week I had to chair my first every board meeting. It is for an important consultative panel and attended by the Federal Government of Australia and a significant industry body. Before finding your videos on YouTube, I had spent $6.5k doing a 4-day course. I learned more via your 1hr video than I did in the 4 days. My 4-hour meeting with 15+ attendees was a great success. I am so grateful to have found you, virtually and look forward to learning more from you in person!


Norm Brady, President & CEO, ABC Western Michigan Chapter: From the moment I walked in the room, I could tell that something was different.  There was energy, laughter, music and engagement.  Normally, our Board Members are reserved.  However, with Susan and Freeman our Board Members were on their feet, sharing and participating.  Susan and Freeman did a great job creating an environment that encouraged participation.  The material was thought provoking and insightful.  Anyone who needs a program to kick off a retreat or conference should definitely consider Group to Team- it’s awesome!!
