Welcome to YNPN Atlanta, a chapter of the national Young Nonprofit Professionals Network. We’re glad you found us! Our goal is to provide great social and networking events alongside professional development that will help Atlanta’s young nonprofit professionals grow and thrive in their careers.
Founded in April 2011, the first professional development YNPN Atlanta event was held in October 2011.
YNPN Atlanta sees an effective, viable, and inclusive nonprofit sector in Metro Atlanta that engages young professionals as an integral part of the nonprofit community, supporting those individuals in their growth and future leadership.
YNPN Atlanta's Statement on Inclusivity
The YNPN Atlanta Board of Directors believes in the importance of inclusivity and diversity for the nonprofit sector and for our community at large.
We stand against any attempt to exclude or discourage individuals from participating in our community on the basis of religion, ethnicity, gender, or other discriminatory attributes. We believe in standing up for the vulnerable and the oppressed. We strive to create a safe space for conversation and growth. In times of division and uncertainty, we encourage collaboration, listening, and advocating for people from all walks of life.
