    A Message From Your YNPN LA Board On COVID-19

    Dear YNPN LA Members and Community, 

    Like all of you, we have been closely monitoring the reports of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). Our number one priority is the health and safety of our members and community. In an effort to practice social distancing and following Governor Newsom’s announcement about canceling large events due to COVID-19, the Professional Development Workshop: Networking with Purpose was cancelled, and all future events have been put on hold until further notice.

    We apologize for the inconvenience and hope that you will join us in putting the safety and health of our community first. Though we are not rescheduling the event at this time, we hope to find an opportunity to bring you this interactive workshop at a later date. Our board is dedicated to bringing forth valuable programming and we are exploring alternative options, including virtual platforms and rescheduling, as appropriate. 

    As we move forward during this dynamic time, we want to assure you that we are monitoring the outbreak closely. We are following the recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control and Los Angeles County Department of Public Health in putting the health and safety of our community first. 


    Stay informed of and practice the following recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Los Angeles County Department of Public Health:

    • Stay at home if you are feeling sick
    • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash
    • Wash your hands frequently with soap and hot water
    • Avoid touching your face, mouth, and eyes
    • Clean and disinfect high-touch areas and surfaces such as counters, tabletops, doorknobs, railings, light switches, toilets, phones, keyboards, remote controls, tablets, and bedside tables
    • Practice simple social distancing strategies from those who are sick, such as verbal salutations instead of handshakes or hugs; not sharing utensils, cups, and linens; and keeping a distance of six feet apart

    In these uncertain times, one thing that remains unwavering is our commitment to our community. Our team looks forward to continue bringing you valuable programming. Please contact us with any questions or concerns at

    Yours in service, 

    Your YNPN LA Board

  • Lights, Camera, Reflect: Using Photography To Tell Your Nonprofit Story


    Lights, Camera, Reflect: Using Photography To Tell Your Nonprofit Story

    This one-hour workshop is designed to equip nonprofit employees with the technical and narrative skills to document their nonprofits' efforts and to properly tell the stories of the communities they work with. We will go over basic photography concepts and practice them with activities, and also discuss photography ethics and best practices. The workshop will be very interactive - we will be practicing interviewing, working with light, portraiture techniques, and documentary/storytelling/narrative techniques. Participants are encouraged to have their cameras ready, but they can also learn everything using their camera phones.

    Cole Montgomery is a photographer and arts educator for ten years working extensively to help nonprofits tell their stories, and training long-term community stakeholders in documentary practices. He lived in Bangkok, Thailand, establishing photography programs for several grassroots nonprofits, and for the past six years has been with Venice Arts, enabling middle and high school students to create year-long projects about family and identity, which culminate in self-published books and exhibitions. He has a Master's degree in photography from Cal State Northridge.
