About Us

YNPN St. Louis connects and cultivates the next generation of nonprofit leaders.

The Young Nonprofit Professionals Network of St. Louis (YNPN St. Louis) connects and cultivates the next generation of nonprofit leaders. We offer a variety of regular professional development and networking opportunities for young people in the social sector. Beginning in 1997 as a small gathering of peers, YNPN has since grown from word-of-mouth and local volunteer leadership teams, to a large network of dozens of active chapters across the country.

YNPN St. Louis is committed to creating an environment in which nonprofit professionals are fully supported and valued, and are leveraged to solve critical problems in the social sector and society as a whole.

While we welcome members from all ages and professional backgrounds, most of our members are in their 20s or 30s and currently work for a St. Louis-area nonprofit.

YNPN St. Louis prides itself on providing quality programming and networking opportunities for its members. Membership with YNPN St. Louis is $50 per year (which begins the day your payment is processed). We have a discounted rate of $25 per year for current AmeriCorps members. So what are you waiting for? Click the Join & Renew tab in the navigation bar to select your membership type today!
