By sharing information, connecting individuals and building skills of emerging leaders, YNPN helps to move individuals across the continuum from emerging to seasoned leaders, ensuring San Diego's nonprofit sector has the leadership necessary to continue meeting the community's needs.

YNPN San Diego does this by:
  • Hosting quarterly Meet & Greets that create a professional community of nonprofit emerging leaders by providing a safe space to connect and network.
  • Organizing various Professional Development Gatherings that bring nonprofit emerging leaders and season leaders in dialogue with each other around career and sector development/pathing. 
Have an idea for a Meet & Greet or Professional Development Gathering?  Share it with us!

    Join YNPN San Diego for our August Book Club Event!

    It's time to find your sweet spot! No I'm not talking about dessert... I'm talking about what happens when you combine your head with your heart to find your hustle. In the book "Work on Purpose" we are going to dive into various stories of Echoing Green Fellows ( who are following their dreams and spending their days doing what they really love (aka working).

    Each of these individuals is taking something that that has piqued their passion, combined with what their technical strengths are to do something to make the world that we live in a better place. This wasn't something that happened overnight - for some it was weeks, months and even years to realize what they were truly meant to be doing.

    Let's take some time to figure out where your head is, where your heart is and what your hustle is. If time permits, a short exercise may accompany our discussion so we can all walk away with a better sense of our own purpose so that we can all be on our way to discovering our hustle. 

    The Kindle edition is less than $5. Get it here. It's a quick read that you'll be able to finish in one sitting!
