YNPN Professional Development Events Help You Advance Your Career

 

 Professional_development_events.png

YNPN is about helping young professionals prepare to lead the nonprofit/public service sector and create positive change in our community.  Our professional development events are designed specifically to meet the needs (and budget constraints) of emerging leaders. Whether it’s a brown-bag discussion of the occupational outlook for young people in the nonprofit field or a training seminar on board development, we look for ways to bring you low-cost, high-quality programming relevant to your career path.

 

Do you want to help plan these events?

Check out this page to learn about all of the ways that you can serve on a YNPN Little Rock committee.

Here is more information about the types of Professional Development committees you can serve on. 

Professional Development Committees
