YNPNSD Welcomes the Community Council

On January 27th, YNPN San Diego launched its very first Community Council comprised of 12 seasoned nonprofit professional leaders that will help guide YNPN’s development and growth. These seasoned leaders will lend experience and guidance to the Advisory Board and YNPN members, connect YNPN San Diego with community resources and advocate for the needs and interests of young professionals in the sector.

We had a great group in attendance at the first meeting last month held at The San Diego Foundation, despite the horrible rainy weather. As a group, we reviewed YNPN San Diego’s organizational history, vision and priorities and discussed Council expectations and objectives.

One of the Community Council’s first priorities will be the development and implementation of a new YNPNSD Mentorship Program, one of the priorities outlined by the YNPN San Diego membership. Council members will offer guidance, best practices and firsthand knowledge about what makes a successful mentorship program and how we can best serve the YNPN member community with rewarding mentorship.

The YNPN San Diego Community Council will meet quarterly at locations throughout San Diego. For more information about this group and its members, please visit

Keep an eye out for more Community Council and Mentorship Program updates throughout the year!
