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 and Executive Committee positions are one-year terms beginning July 1. 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, board members will also be expected to attend a retreat with orientation.

Not sure this opportunity is for you? Visit the Meet the Board page to reach out to any of our current Board of Directors.


You can also reach out to us at and we’d be happy to connect via email or coffee!

Applications due by Monday, June 3.

“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
