YNPN RVA, powered by ConnectVA, is the local chapter of the Young Nonprofit Professionals Network.
What is YNPN RVA?
YNPN RVA cultivates a community of future nonprofit leaders through networking and professional development opportunities that build on individual strengths and talents. We envision a rising generation of diverse, empowered, and highly engaged nonprofit leaders that will work collaboratively to strengthen our sector, and in turn, the Richmond region.
YNPN RVA Events
Membership through YNPN RVA connects young and early career nonprofit professionals to a community of like-minded, socially-conscious members who interact through social and professional development.

What Can I Expect During the Year?
YNPN RVA Members and non-members can expect monthly opportunities to build their brand, network and career in various formats like, workshops, panel discussions, networking opportunities, happy hours, fun local activities and more! Beginning in April, we’re even offering a monthly Members-Only Nonprofit Articles Club – where we’ll share, read and have engaging conversations on interesting topics relevant to our lives and careers at different coffee shops around the city in the morning before work.
We expect to offer 20+ events next year and MEMBERS get into ALL for FREE (otherwise $10 for most events) on top of all the other benefits of being a member – click buttons above for more details!
