Opportunity Grants

The YNPN Atlanta Opportunity Grant awards individual grants of up to $500 to reimburse current YNPN Atlanta members for professional development opportunities such as conference attendance, class and workshop fees, membership to professional associations, and more! Although YNPN Atlanta proudly offers many affordable programs and events to our members, we recognize there are many other opportunities for young professionals to further their careers within Atlanta’s nonprofit sector. Most nonprofit organizations have limited professional development budgets, and emerging leaders may not have access to funds for training, conferences, and other opportunities that are vital to career advancement.
