Get Involved

Group of nonprofit professionals at an event

How do I join?

Come to an event!  Join us when you can and keep track of events you’ve missed out on via our website and social media pages listed below.  Also, bring a friend or two – the more the merrier!

What is the age range for this group?

While most of our members are in their 20s and 30s, we welcome anyone who wants to join YNPN Portland.  Events and programming are geared towards some of the challenges young professionals face in the nonprofit sector, but may also be helpful to individuals of any age who are joining the nonprofit world after working in the for-profit or public sectors.  Bottom line: if you think you can learn and contribute, please join us!

I don’t work at a nonprofit, can I still come?

Yes!  We welcome anyone with an interest in the nonprofit sector, including public and private sector employees, students, nonprofit volunteers and those seeking work in the nonprofit sector.

I have been to a few events and I am interested in getting more involved – is that possible?

Yes again! YNPN Portland has an active Board of Directors and Sub-Committees working on all aspects of the group’s programming, marketing, membership outreach, partnership development and sustainability. While Board elections only occur every 6 months, you are welcome to reach out to one of our committees to get involved. We would love to hear from you to find the right fit for you!
