Are you a morning person? So are we! Kickoff your Friday morning with us for our signature "Wake Up With YNPN" event, designed to bring young professionals together to network, brainstorm and problem solve around pressing issues and opportunities affecting our sector. This month’s theme: the sustainability and impact of nonprofit professionals in our sector (or in other words, avoiding burnout while maximizing effectiveness).
As nonprofit professionals, we work hard. We are fiercely dedicated to missions that we believe can change the world; we often work long hours for little pay, and the immensity and complexity of society’s social, political and economic injustices can leave us feeling exhausted and skeptical of the true extent of the impact of our work.Mark your calendar to “Wake Up With YNPN,” where we'll share ideas, learning experiences and wisdom to inspire and invigorate one another. Whether you consider yourself an expert in your field or are simply curious to learn from others’ perspectives, join us for a cup of coffee or tea and your favorite morning pastry. The treats are on us!We also have some resources to get the conversation rolling! Here are a couple to get you thinking ahead of time:
- "Why Nonprofits Have a Burnout Problem"
- "Five Myths that Perpetuate Burnout Across Nonprofits"
- "Nonprofits Making Moves to Avoid Employee Burnout"
- "Creating High Impact Nonprofits"
See you bright and early!
ReCity Network, Young Nonprofit Professionals Network of the Triangle Announce Strategic Partnership Social impact hub, industry group join forces to help nonprofit leaders thrive September 19, 2017 (DURHAM, NC) ReCity Network and Young Nonprofit Professionals Network of the Triangle are proud to announce a new strategic partnership to impact Triangle-area nonprofit leaders and the constituents they serve. A social impact hub for a growing roster of nonprofits, faith-based organizations, and mission-driven businesses, ReCity is now partnering with YNPN, a nonprofit leadership organization, to help ensure the nonprofit sector will have the resources it needs to address critical, persistent social issues and build a stronger, more equitable Triangle community for all. Moving forward, ReCity Network will begin hosting YNPN Triangle professional development events at its 12,000-square-foot coworking, meeting, and event space located near the intersection of Broadway and Mangum Streets in downtown Durham. YNPN’s free events are designed for emerging leaders to gain the skills and knowledge necessary for their success in a nonprofit career, covering topics like impact metrics and strong governance. Additionally, these events provide networking opportunities for attendees to build relationships with other social sector leaders, as both YNPN Triangle NC and ReCity Network understand that these types of connections are vital to building a more powerful, cohesive nonprofit sector. YNPN events at ReCity Network will also be an opportunity for the organization’s members to learn about opportunities to become a part of the ReCity and its broader set of resource offerings, including work space and professional services, including legal and marketing. “It’s always good when you can find other organizations that are perfectly aligned to your own vision and work with them to make a greater impact, “ said Rob Shields, founding Executive Director of ReCity Network. “That’s the whole premise of ReCity Network—bringing together people of purpose to solve problems for our people more efficiently and effectively. We are proud to bring YNPN’s leadership-building resources to our network and share our space and community with them.” “ReCity Network’s work to bring nonprofits under one roof and create an inclusive, physical space for collaboration is the type of innovation our sector needs,” said Katie Todd, chair of the YNPN Triangle NC board of directors. “Our members recognize the urgency in each of their individual organizations. To be able to come to a space like ReCity and be surrounded by thoughtful leaders to learn from and work with each day can only help all of our organizations achieve their missions sooner.”read more
