YNPN Comes to Boston

The Young Nonprofit Professionals Network (YNPN) has officially launched in Boston and Commongood Careers was there to celebrate! YNPN has been connecting nonprofit professionals in their 20s and 30s in cities like New York and San Francisco for years. We are thrilled to now have this valuable and fun networking group in our own backyard.

We attended YNPN's kickoff event at the Revolution Rock Bar. Most of the other attendees were there to meet other people who work in their fields or network for new job opportunities. There was a genuine feeling of comraderies, and many attendees commented to us that this was really a one-of-a-kind gathering in Boston.

We also met some professionals interested in making the leap to the nonprofit sector. They saw this opportunity as a great way to speak with nonprofit professionals in an informal and fun setting.

We look forward to participating in more YNPN events and wish them the best in building a great network of young nonprofit professionals in the Boston area.
