Meaningful Work Database
Search for organizations based on contribution to some of the biggest problems in the world, then find people who can help you join existing efforts, or create new solutions.
Problems turn into jobs. We have curated a massive collection of problems from all across Nebraska. Start with one big category, learn how to tug at the root causes, then narrow focus to a tangible pathway to do some good in your community, the state, or the world. Depends on your goals really.
Pro Tip: Think outside the box for careers and opportunities within each problem area. For example, while Climate Action needs scientists of all kinds, marketers, storytellers, supply and logistics specialists, journalists, product designers, and more all have a vital role to play.
If an area interests you, try it out. You might find the perfect path you never knew existed!
Every problem in the Meaningful Impact Hub can be tackled through any of these pathways. Change your career to meaningful, in-demand work, volunteer, build transferable skills, or focus on solving the world in a way that works for you. Feel free to mix & match. Join what exists, or innovate a new solution.
