Vision, Mission, Values, and Theory of Change

YNPN's vision: Stronger communities advanced by a diverse and powerful social sector.

YNPN's mission: Activate emerging leaders by connecting them with resources, people, and ideas.

YNPN's Theory of Change:

We believe that a diverse and powerful social sector requires:

  • Activated leaders who are thoughtful and effective changemakers that bring creativity and fresh perspectives to solving our communities’ most intractable social problems;
  • People with an understanding of power dynamics and the systematic, historical and cultural context in which they are trying to make change;
  • Networks that facilitate working across institutions and bring diverse groups of people together to achieve common goals;
  • Research, writing, and speaking that challenges the systems that hold us back and consistent engagement with a variety of ideas and approaches.
