YNPN NYC is a chapter of the Young Nonprofit Professionals Network (YNPN), a national network that activates emerging leaders by connecting them with resources, people, and ideas. Since 2002, the NYC chapter has been cultivating young nonprofit professionals who are strengthening our communities.


YNPN NYC develops the social leaders of tomorrow by creating connections, enhancing skills, and inspiring achievement.


Every person with the passion to see a better world can have a positive impact on the lives of others.

We are developing strategies to nourish, encourage, and identify leaders who are putting their mission before their organization, their field before themselves, and the outcomes they need to deliver before the challenges of delivering them.
