The Bismarck-Mandan Young Professionals Network (YPN) is now accepting applications for an area nonprofit organization to partner with for the next year as part of the Network’s service to the community. Only current members of the YPN may submit applications. However, area nonprofits are encouraged to seek out a YPN member to apply on their behalf. Submit your nomination using the form below.

Applications are due November 8th and will be reviewed by a committee of YPN members. The top three applicants will be asked to present at the next Board meeting.

The partnership – running from January 2023 to May 2024 – will give the selected nonprofit an opportunity to connect with young professionals from around Bismarck-Mandan, while providing network members with service opportunities throughout the year. All YPN fundraising efforts for that time period will go towards the chosen nonprofit organization.

The YPN nonprofit partnership started in 2014 and this past year the selected nonprofit partner was Dakota Children’s Advocacy Center. This partnership  allowed DCAC to connect with young professionals from around Bismarck-Mandan and provided YPN members with service opportunities throughout the year. The YPN directed many fundraising and volunteer efforts from 2021-2022 towards the organization.
