Connecting Young People Doing Good

Some of you might have heard of the Young Professionals Network. Well, did you know there is a version for those of us working in the non-profit sector? I belong to the DC chapter of Young Nonprofit Professionals Network (YNPN), a group dedicated to really making as much information as possible available to those in our field through job fairs, seminars and networking happy hours.

It’s amazing that there’s a forum out there to focus on younger people that are dedicated to the missions of many unique and important organizations. At these events, it’s great to hear different stories about the struggles and triumphs that all people in the non-profit world experience. Of course, I would be remiss to attend these events and not mention PICnet’s services, so I always have a quick blurb about us in the hopes of spreading the word about who we are and what we do. At the end of the day, even though I don’t make a sale, it’s still great to spread our mission and see how what we do aligns so clearly with what many non-profits need.

I think attending the YNPN events are a great way to create a community for non-profit organizations located all over the city. It’s amazing to learn how many non-profits could really use a website revamp, and once they learn PICnet does it for such an affordable price, they are quick to ask more about us.
