The best part about being involved with YNPN Triangle NC: getting to meet other YNPN Triangle NC members! Check out our upcoming events to see where we'll be networking, learning, and growing in order to build a more inclusive Triangle nonprofit sector.
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!
