YNPN Phoenix LINK event will provide a platform for young professionals to present about a topic that is affecting the nonprofit sector, either for an organization they are employed, volunteer, advocate for or are passionate about. Six speakers will be selected and allocated three minutes to make a compelling case for their cause. Audience members will vote and the highest voted presenter will win a donation of $500 for their chosen cause, on behalf of YNPN Phoenix.
