Descend deep underground with us to Honey in Minneapolis, where you and your fellow YNPNers will bear witness to the brave souls who will each take the stage for a five-minute presentation on our theme of Transformation.
This high-energy, fast-paced event is the perfect bite-sized opportunity to gain knowledge, meet some devilish young nonprofit professionals, and get a taste of what it's like to be on the hot seat.
Doors open at 6:00 PM and the program starts at 7:00 PM.
Will our presenters stay in hell or make the journey to YNPN heaven? You'll be the judge!
