YNPN Chicago hosts an annual Celebration to recognize outstanding members of the nonprofit community and to give our members the chance to engage and network. Our 2023 Celebration Awards will be held on June 27, 2023 at the Center on Halsted. 


The Creating Space Initiative hosts networking events every other month on Monday evenings from March- September, for those who identify as Black, Indigenous, and/or a person of color. The goal of this is to come together, build community, and provide support for BIPOC.


YNPN Chicago is achieving more with our initiatives than ever before. Check out our current and upcoming events, like Morning Huddle, Happy Hours, Coffee With Nine Strangers, and more!
