Digital Resource Roundtable

Chandler Rock is a volunteer on the YNPN Triangle NC Programming Committee.

At our Resource Roundtable event in October, young nonprofit professionals came together to enjoy coffee and biscuits at A Place at the Table to give and get some helpful tips. Warm and open dialogue was enjoyed by all, and we generated so many great insights that we wanted to share them with all of you. Our key takeaways were to hone in on your passion, don’t be afraid to ask, and to follow up!

How to find a job locally or out of state:

  • Take part in the Duke Nonprofit Management Program (fee, ask your organization to sponsor cost) for skills-building, professional development, and networking.
  • Toastmasters is an international organization with local chapters that focus on building confidence and focus in public speaking (small fee).
