YNPN-Houston is here to support, prepare, and connect emerging community leaders to positively impact the Greater Houston Area.  Since our inception in 2010 the Young Nonprofit Professionals Network – Houston (YNPN-Houston) has brought dedicated young nonprofit professionals together to network, enhance career abilities and discover more about each other. After a board transition, YNPN-Houston relaunched in January 2014 to a great welcome.

There are a variety of ways to engage with YNPN-Houston: through our monthly social get-togethers on the final Thursday of each month (called Thirsty Thursday), our quarterly professional development events and our career-enhancing content on Facebook and Twitter.  Sign up for our email list to get event info delivered to your inbox.

Your first year of membership to YNPN Houston is free!
