[Blog Buddies] Welcoming the Inaugural Cohort of EPIP-YNPN Leadership Institute Participants

I'm excited to be a part of the planning team coordinating the EPIP-YNPN Leadership Institute and thrilled to announce the roster for our inaugural cohort in 2014! See below for more details about this innovative new learning institute focused on cohort experience and co-creation. And if you see one of your friends or colleagues on the list below, feel free to reach out and congratulate them on taking next steps in their leadership journeys!

Welcoming the Inaugural Cohort of EPIP-YNPN Leadership Institute Participants

YNPN-TC and EPIP-MN have partnered to launch a 10-month cohort learning experience for young professionals working in the nonprofit and philanthropic sectors. The experience is aimed at encouraging exploration of participants’ big career questions while doing some serious skill swapping and network weaving across the local foundation and nonprofit worlds. We were thrilled by the overwhelming number of truly stellar applications, but are only able to manage logistics for a small number of participants in this year’s pilot program. We look forward to exploring the ways we can work together to create a broader array of these kinds of opportunities in future, now that you, the YNPN-TC members, have demonstrated such strong interest. (If you are interested in joining in this exploration and planning, we'd love to hear from you!)
