We love supporting Wichita’s nonprofit community, and our members are eager to learn about all the valuable services nonprofits offer to Wichita residents. YPW offers several opportunities for nonprofit partnerships:

Board Placement Program

Having a YP on your nonprofit Board of Directors helps ensure that you have a pipeline of individuals who are excited about your mission now and into the future. Our members also provide a connection to areas of expertise that more experienced Board members may not have, such as strong social media literacy and ideas about how to engage the Millennial generation in your important work in the community.

Part 1: Board Placement 101

YPW Members Only

This panel-discussion event prepares YPW members for the opportunity to serve on a nonprofit Board by learning from other YPs who are currently in those positions.

Part 2: Board Placement Networking Event

YPW Members + Nonprofit Representatives

This event is your opportunity to connect with YPs who are interested in effecting change in the community by serving in a leadership role on a nonprofit Board. Our members are typically highly educated, have served in volunteer roles in the community, and are ready for more.

  1. During the event, the nonprofits and YPs meet for a limited time to ask questions and share about themselves.
  2. At the end of the event, both the nonprofit representatives and YPW members turn in interest forms selecting their preferred candidates/nonprofits.
  3. After the event, we match those who have common interest and pass the contact information of the individuals to the nonprofits to continue the process of getting the YP involved on its board.

Volunteers

Do you need volunteers for your event or organization? We encourage nonprofits to encourage their employees to be involved with YPW. The best way to find committed volunteers from our membership is by engaging with them on a regular basis to share your story and passion for the community.

If you require a larger group of volunteers, we can put you in touch with our Community Engagement team. This team is responsible for planning community service events that include a brief informational session about the nonprofit organization, a service component, and/or an opportunity for our members to network with each other. Please contact Alejo Cabral at (316) 268-1171 to discuss this opportunity.

Event Promotion

YPW is here to serve its members, and we want to ensure that any potential partnership is valuable to them. All organizations are welcome to submit an event to be posted on our Community Calendar. If you would like additional assistance in promoting your event, we ask that our members receive either a 30% (or greater) ticket discount or a perk provided exclusively for YPW members. This is simply due to the fact that there are so many great events happening in Wichita and limited bandwidth for us to promote others’ events in addition to our own. Please contact Alejo Cabral at (316) 268-1171 to discuss your organization’s event.
