We expect 150+ people to attend out 4th Annual NextGen Breakfast! The event will include a seated breakfast, a keynote address, and very special table discussions. For these discussions, YNPN Atlanta brings together leaders selected from the Metro Atlanta nonprofit and philanthropic community. These guests of honor act as a facilitator at one of the tables for the event. Our young nonprofit professional attendees choose which nonprofit leader's table they want to join for the event when purchasing their ticket.
