If you would have asked me my “dream job” three years ago I would have described a position working for major nonprofit, connecting corporations with local agencies to mobilize their resources through volunteering and philanthropy for the good of our community. Today, that’s exactly what I am honored to do at Heart of Florida United Way – and I credit my involvement as a member of the Young Nonprofit Professionals Orlando (YNPN) Leadership Team to getting me here.
It is for this reason and many others that I am honored to serve as Board Chair for YNPN Orlando’s 2015-2016 Leadership Team. Since joining the YNPN Leadership Team in 2011, I have enjoyed the opportunity to work with a dedicated group of young professionals from across the sector – arts, human services, education, and more – and I continue to learn about many aspects of the community resources available in Orlando and diversify my skill set. I’ve also benefited from being connected to the national YNPN network of nearly 50 chapters all over the country – widely considered to be the “go-to” organization for young professionals in the nonprofit sector.
Now it’s your turn – YNPN Orlando is seeking a diverse group of professionals who want to take the next step in their career and professional development by joining our Leadership Team. Taking on a leadership role with YNPN Orlando affords you many opportunities, including growth and development of your presence in our community, chances to connect with key community members, and develop your leadership style. A position with YNPN can be invaluable in helping you transition into a nonprofit career if you’re a corporate professional looking to break into the sector, or a student about to graduate. Most importantly, your contribution will leave a lasting mark on our community.
2015 – 2016 YNPN Leadership Team Applications are now available, and include job descriptions and all the details regarding joining the Leadership Team. We have several positions available, and all are welcome to apply for any position, even if you are brand new to the group.
Strong leaders in the nonprofit sector are the key to a strong community – please consider joining us today. If you have any questions, feel free to call me; I would love to answer any questions you may have or speak further about the difference YNPN involvement has made in my life and career.
YNPN Orlando Board Chair, 2015-2016
