It’s graduation season and, for many young people, the time is right to explore available careers and find a satisfying and sustainable job. Each year, more and more emerging professionals choose careers that allow them to give back to their community. According to Deloitte’s 2015 Millennial survey, six in ten millennials chose their current employer because their role gives them a feeling of purpose. For many of these young people, that means a career in nonprofit work.
Nonprofit careers comes with a unique set of challenges and opportunities, and the Milwaukee chapter of the Young Nonprofit Professionals Network (YNPN) is here to help. YNPN is a volunteer-led membership organization that offers opportunities for young professionals to connect and support one another, enhance their professional skills, and learn more about the depth and breadth of Milwaukee’s robust nonprofit community.
YNPN Milwaukee Board President Holly McCoy and Vice President, Membership Chair and Marketing Co-chair Brad Fisher want to recruit you! Holly is busy in her role as Interim Executive Director for Milwaukee Achiever Literacy Services and explains why taking time out to support YNPN is so worth it. Brad works for a for-profit company, but appreciates the opportunities YNPN presents him to have an impact and build his professional skills.
