Event Recap: Boards, Committees, & More

On Thursday, January 28th, 2021, we hosted our first virtual event of the year! 

Last month, five nonprofits – including YNPN Portland – presented their board, committee, or other skill-building volunteer opportunities at an online YNPN event. Even if you missed the event, it’s not too late to join one of these nonprofits! All five organizations are still recruiting and have extended any deadlines accordingly.
