Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

We aim to strengthen the social sector by activating emerging leaders and connecting them with resources, people, and ideas.

Our YPNP chapters across the country provide a way for young professionals and diverse populations to enter and navigate the social sector and develop the skills and knowledge needed to be effective leaders. We have 50,000 members and local chapters in 42 cities, all run by young nonprofit professionals from that community.

YNPN prides itself on being a grassroots organizations. Each local chapter is run by a young nonprofit professional from that area. This ensures that chapters are responsive to the unique needs of their community and that members are provided leadership opportunities that make the most sense for them. At the same time, such a large network requires infrastructure to ensure continued success. YNPN national provides this infrastructure through our comprehensive chapter operation system. Our chapter operation system includes: a shared investment from each chapter; separate legal status and bank accounts for each chapter; a clear definition of membership; access to a shared database that helps to manage membership, share information, and measure impact. To ensure that the chapter operating system is functioning at full capacity, YNPN national provides resources and technical support to local chapters.

YNPN's reach continues to grow! Between 2011 to 2014 alone the number of YNPN chapters increased by nearly 70%, growing from 25 to 42 chapters. Such growth illustrates the need for professional development and support in the social sector. We hope to continue to enhance the resources and programs we can offer our local chapters.
