Dear colleagues,

Thank you for nominating a young leader to participate in Philanthropy New York's 2020 Young Leaders Breakfast Club cohort.

The Young Leaders Breakfast Club (YLBC) is a ten month cohort-based network and leadership development program. YLBC is geared toward philanthropy professionals who have five to fifteen years of experience, with an intentional focus to engage communities historically underrepresented in the philanthropic sector. YLBC creates a space for participants to build relationships across a diverse community of professionals, work on personal and collective learning agendas, and practice leadership skills. Through YLBC, we are building a more networked philanthropic sector dedicated to equitable, inclusive, collaborative and innovative philanthropy.

If you haven’t already, I encourage you to read the full program description on our website: Participating in YLBC is a significant professional commitment and requires time out of the office during work hours. Organizational support of this young leader's participation in YLBC is critical and ensures that this program is a successful experience for all young leaders and the mentors who have offered their time.

We aim to accept around 30 PNY members in this year's YLBC cohort. Due to high demand, we often need to limit the number of participants from any one organization to ensure the cohort represents PNY's organizational membership.

Thank you again for your nomination. We are delighted to offer this program as one of the many ways we support philanthropic professionals at all points in their careers. We hope you will encourage your staff to take full advantage of Philanthropy New York's many programs, networks and resources.

Please don't hesitate to reach out to me if you have any questions.
