By sharing information, connecting individuals and building skills of emerging leaders, YNPN helps to move individuals across the continuum from emerging to seasoned leaders, ensuring San Diego's nonprofit sector has the leadership necessary to continue meeting the community's needs.

YNPN San Diego does this by:
  • Hosting quarterly Meet & Greets that create a professional community of nonprofit emerging leaders by providing a safe space to connect and network.
  • Organizing various Professional Development Gatherings that bring nonprofit emerging leaders and season leaders in dialogue with each other around career and sector development/pathing. 
Have an idea for a Meet & Greet or Professional Development Gathering?  Share it with us!

    Join YNPN San Diego and EPIP SD San Diego for a joint December Book Club event!

    Join the San Diego chapters of YNPN and EPIP to close out 2014 with a conversation about the future of philanthropy and social sector innovation!

    With the resources of both governments and traditional philanthropy barely growing or in decline, yet the problems of poverty, ill-health, and environmental degradation ballooning daily, new models for financing social and environmental objectives are urgently needed. Fortunately, a revolution is underway in the instruments and institutions available to meet this need. Loans, loan guarantees, private equity, barter arrangements, social stock exchanges, bonds, social secondary markets, and investment funds are just some of the actors and tools occupying the new frontiers of philanthropy and social investment. Together they hold the promise of leveraging for social and environmental purposes not just the billions of dollars of charitable grants but the hundreds of billions, indeed trillions, of dollars of private investment capital.

    While the changes under way are inspiring, they remain largely uncharted. This concise introduction to the topic, and its companion volume, provide the first comprehensive and accessible roadmap to these important advances. In the process, these works will better equip investors, philanthropists, social entrepreneurs, nonprofit leaders, business executives, government officials, and students the world over to capture the opportunities that these developments hold out to them and to our world.

    Purchase the book in paperback or Kindle edition here. You can also read an excerpt for FREE in Stanford Social Innovation Review here or here.  You can also view other resources made available by the Johns Hopkins Center for Civil Society Studies

    No time to read? No problem! Come to Book Club ready to share your ideas and experiences.

    Let's get together for a thought-provoking conversation with other nonprofit leaders from around San Diego.  Thank you to the San Diego Foundation for providing a great space for this month's discussion!

    See you December 10!
