DiveWhat are you waiting for?
Time is running out to
apply for
Deep Dive Sessions
Applications due May 2nd

The Deep Dives are an amazing opportunity for our local members
During the YNPN National Leaders Conference there is an amazing opportunity available for our local members: Two day-long workshops facilitated by two great organizations. These "Deep Dive" workshops would normally cost hundreds of dollars to attend, but YNPN-TC is offering these sessions to our local members free of charge.

About The Workshops
Like we mentioned above, there are two separate workshops to choose from, each with limited seating. You can apply to both, but you will only be selected for one (unless you somehow have superhuman powers that enable you to be in two places at once - if that's the case, please tell us what radioactive spider bit you and where to find it). The workshops will take place on Friday, June 27th from 10:30am - 5:00pm.

Your two amazing workshop options to choose from are:
1. Connecting Career to Purpose with Echoing Green's Work on Purpose Program
YNPN is partnering with Echoing Green to teach you how to become a Work on Purpose facilitator. As a Work on Purpose facilitator, you will acquire the tools you need to lead workshops for your community and help equip others with the skills they need to realize their unique way to make social impact.

Throughout its 25 year history, Echoing Green has performed thousands of in­depth interviews with its world-­changing social entrepreneurship Fellows and has observed ten principles that lead individuals to fulfilling work that makes the world a better place. These ten principles are the cornerstone of Echoing Green's Work on Purpose curriculum and training.
Work on Purpose would be a valuable curriculum to bring back to your community because it provides inspiration and frameworks to support a wide spectrum of young people seeking to make the world a better place in a way that is uniquely right for them.
If you are excited about facilitating group workshops and passionate about helping others with personal and professional development so they can pursue meaningful work, then this is the Deep Dive for you!
2. Inclusive Leaders Create Inclusive Communities: Diving In
An important conversation in today's workplace centers around this question: Why and how do we move from inclusion as a value to inclusion as a practice? This year, by offering a day-long intensive training track with the International Institute for Sustained Dialogue, we believe we can begin to move our communities towards addressing that question for the long haul.

The International Institute for Sustained Dialogue develops everyday leaders who engage differences as strengths to improve their campuses, workplaces, and communities. Sustained Dialogue is a five-stage social change model that is designed to transform relationships and create informed community change.
Participants in this Deep Dive will learn how to be boundary spanners in their organizations and communities, practice empathy, form traits of authentic leadership, frameworks for better decision-making, and work in diverse teams.
If you are passionate about creating inclusive communities through a powerful dialogue­ to­ action process, then this is the Deep Dive for you!

We hope you will consider applying for these great workshops
We can't stress enough what amazing opportunities these workshops are, and we hope you won't let them pass you by without applying. If you have any questions about the Deep Dive workshops, you can email deepdive@ynpn.org
Applications are due by May 2nd. If selected, you will need to commit to attending the full-day workshop from 10:30am- 5:00pm on Friday, June 27th at the Humphrey School of Public Affairs, located at the University of Minnesota in St. Paul.
