Chapter Leaders invited to join us for the 2019 Leaders Institute!



The YNPN Leaders Institute, presented by University of Chicago Booth School of Business Civic Scholars Program, will convene chapter leaders in Chicago on August 10-12, 2019. #ynpn19 will bring together chapter leaders from across the YNPN network to build relationships, learn from each other, and reconnect with YNPN’s vision of strengthening communities by building a diverse and powerful social sector. The 2019 Leaders Institute is where the most passionate and innovative nonprofit professionals will come to take their careers and leadership to the next level.

YNPN is an intentionally creative space for developing and connecting the next generation of social change leaders. We like to think of our network-building model as the equivalent of offering a pile of blocks, a lump of Playdoh, pipe cleaners, and pickup sticks to the most expansive young minds in the country. Our approach awakens a diverse cross-section of young people to their potential to create change in their communities, provides them with the skills and experiences they need to meet that potential, and allows them to build connections across differences.

Highlights of this year’s Leaders Institute include -

Peer-led workshops which give chapter leaders the chance to share their chapter’s expertise in an area and participants the chance to learn with and from their peers.

One-on-one career and leadership professional coaching sessions.

Evening social and networking events aimed at strengthening YNPN Chapter Leader relationships.

Deep Dive sessions which offer attendees the unique opportunity to spend a full day thinking and learning about Equity, Diversity and Inclusion; Network Leadership; or YNPN Strategy.
