MISSION YNPN Pgh connects emerging leaders with resources, people and ideas to foster their development as nonprofit professionals.
VISION Equip emerging nonprofit employees with the skills and resources to become tomorrow’s nonprofit professionals.
Founded in 2009, YNPN Pgh promotes an efficient, viable and inclusive nonprofit sector in the Pittsburgh region that supports the growth, learning, and development of young professionals. We are an independent 501c3 nonprofit organization led by our board of directors and various volunteer committees.
We are part of the national YNPN movement that has been in existence since 1997 to activate emerging leaders and help them acquire the skills and awareness they need to be effective changemakers. Together with thousands of leaders in more than 50 cities throughout the US and Canada, we're building a diverse and powerful social sector that can support and strengthen our communities, including Pittsburgh.
We engage and support future nonprofit and community leaders through our Mentoring Program, networking and educational events, and by highlighting nonprofit resources.
