Join Our Board

Did you know that YNPN Des Moines is an all-volunteer led organization dedicated to providing and promoting opportunities for the development of young professionals in the nonprofit sector?

And guess what - the application to join the YNPN Des Moines Board of Directors is officially open! Serving as a board member is a meaningful way to practice new professional skills, build incredible relationships, and support your fellow young nonprofit professionals in the sector.


YNPN Des Moines has several openings for new Board Members. Co-Chair positions are two-year terms beginning July 1, 2023. Executive Committee positions are one-year terms beginning July 1, 2023. The board meets formally every other month, starting in July. During the "off" months, a casual meeting is held that focuses on collaboration. In July or August of 2023, board members will also be expected to attend a retreat with orientation.

Not sure this opportunity is for you? Join us on April 20th from 5:30 - 7:00 Gusto Pizza Bar on Ingersoll to meet the current board, ask questions, and determine if this opportunity is right for you.

“As a YNPN Des Moines board member, I feel like I’m surrounded by an army of smart, resilient young professionals with big ideas and a willingness to support each other. I have no doubt young professionals will continue to make our local nonprofit sector stronger.” - Clara Bergan, board member
