Exciting news for friends in The Lou!

As we mark our tenth anniversary, I am honored and humbled by YNPN St. Louis' accomplishments. We've provided numerous professional development programs and networking opportunities. We have been a forum for meaningful dialogue about the nonprofit sector and continue to recognize the great achievements made by the nonprofit unicorns in our beloved city.

With our tenth year well underway, I am thrilled to mark another exciting milestone in the legacy of YNPN St. Louis. YNPN St. Louis and several chapters around the country have successfully embarked on a new partnership with our organizational leadership, YNPN National. With this partnership comes new membership benefits, chapter resources, and an upgraded website.

Ten years ago we were a group of young nonprofit professionals at a happy hour with a dream. Today, we serve the greater St. Louis area and continue to meet the needs of the ever changing nonprofit landscape. To our members, thanks for joining me on this wild ride. To our members-yet-to-be, hop on! Let's make change together.

Networking can be hard, but YNPN St. Louis makes it easy! We’re teaming up with St. Louis’ Community Service Public Relations Council (CSPRC) and Association of Fundraising Professionals St. Louis Regional Chapter (AFP St. Louis) to bring a bunch of young nonprofit professionals together for some speed networking.

Each round will last roughly two minutes, giving you time to make a quick, meaningful connection, before you’ll be off to meet someone new. Make sure to bring plenty of business cards and your best elevator pitch! We will provide appetizers and there will be a cash bar.



September Coffee with 9 Strangers

Wednesday, September 5
Program: 7:30 AM to 8:30 AM
City Creperie
Free to members and non-members

Join YNPN and other young professionals at City Creperie on Wednesday, September 5th from 7:30am-8:30am to network with like-minded peers, gain professional skills, and troubleshoot work related challenges.

What’s up with getting a new job and figuring out the new culture? How do you ask for a raise? What’s up with the Standing Ovation Awards? Do you have a question about getting involved in a YNPN committee to beef up those leadership credentials? Come network in a super casual coffee shop (WITH CREPES!) and get your questions answered. Or just come have a crepe with us. Either way, it’s a great way to start up your Wednesday.
