    Coffee with Nine Strangers

    YNPN Chicago’s signature program, Coffee with Nine Strangers, gives young professionals who are currently part of, or are interested in, the nonprofit sector an opportunity to network with like-minded peers and engage in small-group discussions around professional topics. Coffee with Nine Strangers is a great way to meet new people, discover a new space, and keep your networking skills fresh.

    This core of this event is a 45-minute small-group conversation on issues relevant to work in the nonprofit sector. Discussion groups are facilitated by YNPN Chicago members and are shaped by participant experiences, concerns, and questions. You’ll have time to network with the full group before and after the conversation group.

    This is one of YNPN Chicago’s most popular programs, so secure your spot by registering today!
