Our Members are the Sector’s Future!


Founded in 2009, the Pittsburgh Chapter of the Young Nonprofit Professionals Network (YNPN Pgh) promotes an efficient, viable and inclusive nonprofit sector that supports the growth, learning, and development of young professionals.

We are part of the national YNPN program that has been in existence since 1997.

We engage and support future nonprofit and community leaders through our Mentoring program, online networking channels and by highlighting nonprofit resources. While we will provide assistance to those at all levels of the nonprofit sector, our particular focus is on younger workers and people who are new to our sector.

Did you know YNPN is a nation-wide network? Here, YNPN Pittsburgh Founding Board Member Dave Tinker networks with YNPN National and YNPN San Diego Board Members at a recent conference.

After interacting in some other professional networking groups, I felt a lack of being able to connect with nonprofit peers. I needed YNPN to find peers who have the same unique experiences and challenges innate to working for a nonprofit organization.
