    Finding and Cultivating the Right Mentor Relationship

    Event Description:

    Join YNPN to learn the ins and outs of finding, developing, and nurturing a mentor relationship. Studies show that people with mentors earn higher salaries, are promoted more frequently, and report higher job satisfaction. On Thursday, April 26th, join us for a dynamic panel of nonprofit leaders and experienced mentors and mentees, followed by in-depth table discussions on:

    • Identifying, cultivating, and nurturing strong mentor/mentee relationships
    • The incremental benefit--personally and professionally--of having a mentor
    • Pitfalls to avoid in mentor relationships
    • And more!

    You will also have time to reflect on your own personal and professional goals, and begin developing a thoughtful action plan in your search for the right mentor. Whether you are interested in learning more about finding a mentor, or interested in paying it forward by becoming a mentor, this will be a program you don’t want to miss. 


    Our Panelists:


    Dr. Janelle Ellis-Holloway, Adjunct Professor & Director of Collegiate Mentoring at Elon University

    Kristine Sloan, CEO of StartingBloc

    Shannon Ritchie, Founder & Strategy Consultant at Nectar Strategies

    Leah Catotti, Managing Director of Operations & Strategy at WISER


    Light refreshments will be provided.

    YNPN Triangle NC announces partnership with ReCity Network

    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.”
