    Hello!


    My name is Megan Anderson and I am currently the Theater Operations Coordinator at Playhouse Square.


    A friend of mine, Kristen Klehr, had a hand in the Cleveland Young Arts Professionals Network that existed a few years ago – but the organization fizzled a bit and has not been active for a few years.


    I am looking to re-ignite that organization, but want to connect with the young professionals networks that are already existing in Cleveland to make sure I am not stepping on any toes, and to see if there are ways for YAPN to collaborate with your organization.


    It’s a bit of a hefty undertaking, but just wanted to open up the conversation and see where the road led!


    Let me know your thoughts, and I look forward to speaking with your organization further about the topic.


    Cheers!

    Hello,


    I just moved to Cleveland 6 months ago. I volunteer at the Alzheimer’s Association and am getting my Masters in Nonprofit Management at Regis University.


    I would love to get involved and hopefully meet some people here in Cleveland.


    I would love to talk to someone about YNPN, so I can learn a little more about the network and events. Perhaps I could meet someone for coffee or come to a meeting.


    Please let me know how I can learn more.


    Thanks,

    Chantel

    Nonprofit Capacity Building: The Allstate Foundation Greater Good Nonprofit Leaders Program


    To strengthen leadership in the nonprofit sector, The Allstate Foundation partnered with the Northwestern University Kellogg School of Management’s Center for Nonprofit Management in 2014 to launch the Greater Good Nonprofit Leaders Program.


    Now in its second year, Greater Good brings together emerging nonprofit leaders from across the country to engage in a unique leadership development program designed to transform their organizations, their communities, and the nonprofit sector as a whole.


    Highly motivated, mid-career nonprofit professionals who have demonstrated exceptional innovation and creativity in their leadership abilities are encouraged to apply between January 1 – March 31, 2016 to be considered for the next Greater Good class.


    Throughout this year-long program, leaders experience four in-person academic sessions led by Kellogg faculty, complemented by one-on-one executive coaching and individual development opportunities. All program elements are customized to participants’ needs based on data collected in a 360-degree assessment of each leader at the start of the program. The Greater Good program and related travel are funded by The Allstate Foundation and offered to participants at no cost to their organizations.


    For more details, please visit www.allstatefoundation.org/greater_good.html.

    I am reaching out on behalf of Oberlin College about an opportunity for YNPN Cleveland. We are piloting a program to expose Oberlin College students to Northeast Ohio’s community of entrepreneurs and social-change agents – outside of Oberlin proper. The purpose of this program is to engage students with local opportunities as a catalyst to fuel Greater Cleveland’s “brain-gain” and retention of young talent towards investing in Cleveland’s future.


    The program will consist of various stops throughout Cleveland on 10/20/2015 including – Greater Cleveland Partnership, Sustainable Development Associates and 78th St. Studios to name a few with activities ranging from guided tours to alumni networking. We believe YNPN Cleveland can have a powerful impact on these students during this event. We are currently looking for a speaker to give a short presentation at the Greater Cleveland Partnership on topics relating to young professional opportunities, social justice enterprises and entrepreneurship in Cleveland. Please contact Chris Fox, Program Coordinator in the Office of Community and Government Relations at cfox@oberlin.edu or (440)775-6200 for more information about becoming a part of our program. We look forward to hearing from you soon.


    All the best,


    Chris Fox
