They have been bombarded with information coming at them at much faster speeds than anyone before them (thanks internet), allowing them to process different types of information faster. This means that millennials have ability to promote and support social and economic change better than any previous generation. They also are inheriting a world that is a mess; the empathy they have can lead to great things.

You can even major in nonprofit management at certain schools and get masters in it as well. This allows people to help more efficiently and specialize their careers so that they get the most satisfaction out of it.
  3. Create your own path: There are so many different types of nonprofits (and jobs within them) allowing people to do whatever they truly want to do. This sort of customization in career choice can also even apply to the country that you end up working and living it too.
  4. Love your job: People who help others are usually happier and more satisfied with their lives. Working in a nonprofit environment means that not only are you helping others, but you very well might be helping yourself as well. And who doesn’t want to be happy in life?
