The Young Nonprofit Professionals Network of Oklahoma City, Inc. (YNPN of OKC) is one of the fastest-growing YNPN chapters in North America. YNPN strives to be a nationwide movement activating emerging leaders to advance a diverse and powerful social sector.
Our chapter’s first event was held on March 4, 2013. Since then, our reach has grown exponentially. In September 2014, we launched our membership program with yearly dues of $25 to help us improve and expand our programming. We have no staff and rely on a board of directors and dedicated committee volunteers to manage our organization and serve our members. YNPN of OKC is tax-exempt under section 501(c)3 of the Internal Revenue Code and donations are tax-deductible.
You do not need to be “young” to take part in YNPN of OKC, but programming is geared towards professionals with less than eight years’ experience in nonprofit organizations. Recent graduates, adult students, nonprofit board members, nonprofit consultants, anyone considering a career change – you are all welcome! Some of our events are members-only and others welcome visitors for a small fee. Details will be posted on each Facebook event page.
Have questions? Want to collaborate on a project or event? Want a YNPN representative to speak to your class or organization about being a new professional in the local nonprofit sector? Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and a board member will get back to you promptly.
YNPN of OKC supports the professional growth of emerging leaders in the local nonprofit sector by providing accessible professional development and strategic networking opportunities.
