The Ottawa Mission Foundation’s Young Professionals Network (YPN) is a volunteer-lead collective of young philanthropists who care about issues surrounding homelessness. YPN’s purpose is to raise the profile of homelessness in our community, and to give people in their 20s and 30s a chance to join the fight by supporting The Ottawa Mission.
YPN offers a unique platform for young people to build relationships with other community-minded leaders. Through networking, donating, volunteering, advocating and fundraising, YPN directly impacts the lives of people who are vulnerable, homeless and in need in our city. YPN raises money through member donations and other fundraising activities to support the important work that is being done at The Ottawa Mission.
