    YNPN 2021 Vision

    June 22, 2021 - The mission of YNPN Triangle NC is to cultivate and support young nonprofit professionals in the Triangle by fostering networking, skill-building, and resource-sharing. To honor our mission and our values, we've broken up the year into three core pieces:

    1. Resource Roundtables: The 2021 Resource Roundtables are structured networking events grounded in YNPN Triangle NC's competency model. During these events, individuals from across the sector will come together to share  essential skills and resources around four main pillars: 

    • Effective communication
    • Personal management
    • Leadership development
    • Technical skills

    2. Networking Opportunities: Through casual networking, we will networking events centered on networking within YNPN Triangle and growing and building the YNPN network!

    3. Skill Building Workshops: Our core competencies are always at the heart of all YNPN Triangle NC professional development events and we want you to grow with us! Please keep our core competencies in mind while attending YNPN Triangle NC events as effective communication, personal management, leadership development, and technical skills are needed to make the nonprofit sector a success.
