YNPN National Technical Assistance and Resources

YNPN National provides access to resources and infrastructure for chapters. Here's a high-level overview of many of them. (Don't worry, you don't have to remember them all now!)


Technological Infrastructure

  • Access to and support for NationBuilder, a content management platform, database, and customer relationship management (CRM) system

  • Access to Maestroconference, an interactive conference call tool

Training and Peer Learning Spaces

  • National Conference

  • Workshops and trainings led by YNPN National and/or national experts

  • Program Xchanges

  • Technical Assistance for chapters

  • Leaders site and resource library

Tools for Data and Impact Measurement

  • YNPN National and chapters will work together to develop shared standards for impact measurement. YNPN National also provides technical assistance for the NationBuilder platform and will provide reports to chapters on aggregated data from across the network.

Connection to the YNPN Network and Brand

  • Framing and Guiding Documents, like the Theory of Change and Five Pillars of Leadership Development, and Branding and Messaging guides

  • Media and public relations work done by YNPN National on behalf of the network that raises visibility of YNPN (examples: partnerships with NPQ, coverage in Stanford Social Innovation Review and Chronicle of Philanthropy, speaking at national conferences and events)

Professional Development Opportunities Specifically for Chapter Leaders

  • Opportunities that occur through participation in the work of the National network: Access to training and resources, participation in Chapter Congress or other specialized work, opportunities to speak at the National Conference

Continuity and Knowledge Management

  • Being a volunteer-run organization means that all chapters experience highs and lows in their chapter leader engagement and activity. Connection with the national network and technology platform means that if your chapter experiences a lull in activity - planned or unplanned - you have outside support to keep you going and a place to keep your data in the meantime.
