Outside of his practice, Nwaeze sits on a number of nonprofit boards, is dedicated to pro bono work, and is involved in several civic organizations and professional associations. He is on the Boards of Directors for Mother Teresa House Inc., Delaware Community Legal Aid Society, Inc., and Campus Philly, as well as the Compliance Committee of the Board of Trustees of Bancroft.
