Young Nonprofit Professionals Network of Grand Rapids
Young Nonprofit Professionals Network of Grand Rapids (YNPN GR) provides emerging nonprofit leaders with opportunities for professional development, education, and networking, while promoting a dialogue among nonprofits in the Greater Grand Rapids region.
Our local YNPN chapter is one of many active throughout the country. YNPN is a national 501(c)3 grassroots nonprofit organization that engages and supports future nonprofit leaders through professional development, networking, and social opportunities.
Beginning in 1997 as a small gathering of peers in San Francisco, YNPN has since grown from word-of-mouth and local volunteer leadership teams, to a nearly 15,000-member network composed of five affiliate chapters, including San Francisco; New York City; Washington, DC; Chicago; Denver; and dozens of emerging chapters in other cities across the country, including Greater Grand Rapids.
