Vantage Point's Youth Network is a series of opportunities for people in the not-for-profit sector, ages 18 - 35, to network and learn from not-for-profit leadership experts.

There are passionate young people who want to develop a career in not-for-profits. There are both incredible opportunities and fulfilling careers within the not-for-profit sector, but the path is not always straightforward. This network is led by a youth staff team at Vantage Point. Together, we can support each other and build the skills and knowledge to have thriving and meaningful careers.

If you are a student or young professional passionate about not-for-profits, we invite you to participate in this series of youth network events. Over the next year, we will host free networking opportunities, professional development sessions, and opportunities to hear from experts.
