SID-Washington's Young Professionals in Development Network (YPN) is a collaborative space for young professionals (under the age of 32) interested and working in international development and dedicated to strengthening its impact both at home and abroad by building partnerships among peers and facilitating and empowering a peer initiative. YPN’s goal is to provide a space for young professionals to network, learn more about the sector, participate in cutting edge debates and discussions on current development issues, and access professional development tools, resources, and skill-building workshops.
