The Young Nonprofit Professionals Network (YNPN) activates emerging leaders by connecting them with resources, people, and ideas.

At YNPN Ottawa our goal is to create a strong and connected nonprofit sector in Ottawa with platforms to share experiences and expertise, discuss and solve problems, and celebrate successes as a community. 

We're a proud chapter of YNPN National - founded in San Francisco, California in 1997. There are currently over 40 chapters across the United States and we are very proud to be the 1st Canadian chapter of this exciting movement!

The most important thing to remember is that we're here for you - whether it's through networking opportunities, educational workshops, or mentoring, we're here to help each other as we learn and grown within this sector.

Our mission is to provide emerging leaders in Ottawa with opportunities for meaningful collaboration, networking, and professional development to strengthen leadership and capacity within the nonprofit sector.


We hope you will join us at our upcoming online meet-ups!  Details will be shared on our Facebook page.
