About

About

YNPN Greater Bflo is made up of you: Young nonprofit professionals who see the value in being intentional about our professional development, and in building a peer support network to help you be more effective change-makers for the good of our communities.

Leadership

YNPN Greater Bflo is led by a dedicated voluntary board of local for-profit and non-profit professionals.

National Movement

This local Young Nonprofit Professionals Network is an emerging chapter of the national YNPN organization. Beginning in 1997 as a small gathering of peers in San Francisco, YNPN has since grown from word-of-mouth and local volunteer leadership teams, to a nearly 15,000 members in chapters across the U.S. This rapid growth and mobilization of next-generation leaders clearly shows the need for installing a pipeline for nonprofit professionals early in their careers.

Mission

YNPN Greater Buffalo strengthens the nonprofit community by serving as an inclusive and innovative resource for networking and growth to empower young professionals.

Vision

YNPN Greater Buffalo envisions a network of engaged professionals striving for excellence in knowledgeable and effective service to the community.
