Why I #nplove YNPN
YNPN National Board member Jessie Singer counts the many ways she loves YNPN.
Roses are red, violets are blue, I love YNPN and you should too!
In all honesty, YNPN is the place where I feel like I truly belong and that I'm amongst the most inspiring young nonprofit professionals that are moving mountains across the country.
Every time I am lacking motivation, need a boost of adrenaline or have lost my passion for my work, I can immediately find a YNPN friend and remember why I dedicate my life to the nonprofit sector.
YNPN is truly a place for me, to be who I really am: an extremely motivated, passionate, career-focused, young, nonprofit professional, who wants to make a REAL difference in the world… not just in my nonprofit, not just in my community, but in the WORLD! (Yes, I dream BIG!)
YNPN is comprised of individuals across the United States (and I hear the latest is that we’ve started to take over, I mean join forces, with our Canadian friends) who live, work and breathe mission-based work. Not all of us spend our day jobs working in the nonprofit sector, but at the end of the day we all share a passion for helping others.
This network is the place where we can take time to professionally develop our own skills to be better individuals. Through social events we network with one another and through educational seminars we hone in on our skills to ensure that our network is a force to be reckoned with.
