Networking For A Cause: Emerging Trends in Volunteerism
Tuesday, November 12, 2013 from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM (CST)
Networking For A Cause: Emerging Trends in Volunteerism and the Young Professional
When it comes to young professionals, causes and volunteering - there are a lot of opportunities. What's the best way to attract young professionals to your cause?
Nonprofits & young professionals will discuss:
- Nonprofits will learn how to engage young professionals by connecting with them, getting them involved and providing opportunities for them to give back
- What are other young professionals passionate about? What motivates them to get involved?
- How to give back and acquire marketable skills at the same time
WHY? A NEW KIND OF NETWORKING EVENT!
Have you ever walked into a "typical" networking event, got a bunch of cards, left and then wondered....
Now what? If so, then we've designed a new experience for you!
We're limiting attendance (in a private networking area) and providing an interactive experience at and after the event. We'll have guided discussions to help you clarify your message, ask the right questions and meet people who can help you solve problems or create opportunities for you.
The format will be open networking with a facilitator creating conversations. If you're a nonprofit: You'll be able to share your mission and tell the people in the room exactly what you need. If you're a young professional you'll be able to share what you're passionate about and tell the people in the room how you would like to help nonprofits.
Nonprofits - You should attend IF: You're having challenges connecting with the RIGHT kind of young professionals for your nonprofit.
Young Professionals - You should attend IF: You love nonprofits & causes, you love events and you want to make new connections in those arenas.
AT THE EVENT: Great discussions! There will be plenty of time to move around (you won't be sitting through the whole event) and meet great people.
AFTER THE EVENT: We'll be creating a blog post with profiles of everybody at the event including: information about the nonprofits, what they need and also profiles of the young professionals.
Why? IF you didn't meet everyone at the event; you can reach out after. We'll be posting this to social media channels and sharing via email so your message can reach even more people.
THIS EVENT IS LIMITED TO 10 YOUNG PROFESSIONALS AND 10 NONPROFITS TO GUARANTEE GREAT DISCUSSIONS AND INTERACTIONS!
