    Nonprofit Squad Goals is a regular series of challenges to help you tackle your professional development goals in small, bite-sized pieces throughout the year. We’ll offer advice and give you a platform to network with other young nonprofit professionals who have committed to making 2016 the best year yet for their careers. You can join the challenge and share your journey by using the hashtag #npsquadgoals.

    In our 2015 Young Nonprofit Professional survey, 92% of you told us that managing relationships is crucial to your professional development. Relationship management is a broad term, but we define it as paying strategic attention to developing and maintaining mutually beneficial relationships with your key stakeholders who can most positively (or negatively) influence your ability to professionally succeed. We dare you to take action by joining our third challenge of the year: Boost your Relationship Management Game!

    I’m a fairly typical example of a millennial in the nonprofit sector when you look at my work history. My career so far has been marked by a plethora of internships, volunteer opportunities, and 2-to-3-year stints in different positions in several cities. I am now in a job I love (yay!) and have a great group of colleagues who all (magically) get along and treat each other with respect, but I have certainly experienced a number of workplaces with (to say it politely) less than desirable work environments.

    I was not alone in that experience at the latest YNPN Boston Event - Bridging the Age Gap: Intergenerational Communication in the Workplace. YNPN Boston brought in a panel of nonprofit leaders to help attendees learn more about and strategize how to deal with these issues without losing your mind (or feeling like you need to quit!).

    Here are some of my favorite tips from the conversation:

    Hello, emerging leaders! 2016 has been an exciting year for YNPN Boston, and we’re just getting started! We’ve got new leadership (including our new roles as co-Chairs – hello!), and new organizational priorities for the year.

    Our goals are ambitious and center around tackling issues that we know are deeply embedded not only in our own organization, but in the sector as a whole. While we feel confident that we’ll have plenty of successes to report on, this year will be a learning opportunity, and we know we’ll still have more work to do in 2017 to achieve these priority areas.

    In our 2015 Young Nonprofit Professional survey, nearly 80% of you listed Marketing and Communications as one of your top most important quantifiable skills for professional development. Marketing and Communications is an expansive field encompassing brand management, sales, content creation, media relations, social media, analytics, Search Engine Optimization, advertising, and much more. It would be difficult to cover all of these in just a blog post, but we have a few ideas on how you can bolster your marketing skillset. We dare you to take action by joining our fourth challenge of the year: Become a Nonprofit Marketing Guru!

    Developing strong marketing and communications skills is critical for any young professional, no matter what their specific job. The ability to clearly express yourself, to articulate your ideas and to persuade others will help you succeed in any role. If you don’t currently work in marketing or communications, you can frame this challenge around your personal brand! Think of yourself as a brand: what do you want your audience(s) to know about you? What unique messages do you want to deliver? Which technical skill can you build to help you in your career path?

    Several times this year during YNPN Boston events, the topic of conversation has turned to Hamilton, the hit musical by Lin-Manuel Miranda. Not a big surprise -  the nation has been discussing it in earnest for the last year or so (especially since their amazing wins at the Grammys and Tonys). But, in true YNPN Boston fashion, we put our own twist on the topic, and started talking about how the themes of the musical relate to the lives and careers of young nonprofit professionals.

    Lets_Talk_Finances_RECAP.jpg

    Many young people enter the nonprofit sector with a strong sense of idealism and the desire to make positive social impact. We also have hopes and dreams outside the office, many of which require money. At times, these parts of us can feel at odds. In YNPN Boston’s 2015 Young Nonprofit Professionals survey, participants reported that the number one reason why they’d leave the nonprofit sector was—no surprise here—low salary and lack of benefits.

    We recently kicked off the first event in our Let’s Talk Finances professional development series to explore how we can have successful nonprofit careers and a secure financial future. Boston Security Analysts Society (BSAS) members Firoza Panthaki and Daniel O’Neill led us through an expert presentation on all of our pressing questions about retirement planning. Here’s part one of two of our summary on their advice, with the disclaimer that we are not financial professionals and are not offering endorsement or other opinions on this advice. Look out for part two, which will be published next week.

    As someone who is easily paralyzed by FOMO (fear of missing out), the bevy of options for conference attendees at this year’s annual YNPN Activate! Summit in Portland, OR, was a nightmare! I ultimately decided to attend a deep dive session entitled “Leading with Emotional Intelligence,” led by longtime nonprofit leader Signe Bishop. I walked away with some incredible, applicable skills!

    I wasn't always a young nonprofit professional. For close to a decade, I was a graduate student, part of a broader community of academics and researchers. Even though I went to a specific university, when I would say, "I'm a grad student," I felt there was a shared feeling of solidarity amongst others like me (stressed out and perpetually on the hunt for free food), regardless of university or program.
