Challenges Facing Entry Level Nonprofit Workers


philanthopry-128x128.pngIn 2012, YNPN partnered with the Chronicle of Philanthropy and the Nonprofit Leadership Alliance to survey our members about issues facing entry level workers in the nonprofit sector.

Over half of the 900 respondents identified as YNPN members.So the survey results – which provided enough data for four compelling articles featured in the June 28, 2012 issue of the Chronicle of Philanthropy – not only tells the story of what is happening for young people accross the sector, but gives special insight into the experience of those attracted to the YNPN network.  Together the four articles tell the story of critical challenges facing our constituents, from concerns over healthcare access to mounting debt – challenges which mirror those of so many workers in America and the vulnerable populations often served by our sector.
