Help your fellow nonprofiteers to come together, build relationships, and grow our community. "Nonprofit Neighborhood Hangouts" are casual get-togethers hosted by volunteers at times and locations that are convenient for them. Then, we promote these opportunities as if they were normal events!
Our Downtown LA Nonprofit Networking Lunch is an example of this. We're especially interested in folks stepping up in Long Beach, the South Bay, Westside, Downtown, San Fernando Valley, South LA, East LA, and the San Gabriel Valley.
This is also a great chance to learn some basic event planning and build your own brand. We provided all the training and support for you to lift your Hangout off the ground.

Self-care is a critical practice that we too often push to the back burner.
Join us on Thursday, Nov 16 from 6-8pm for our Self Care Workshop: Caring For Others by Caring For Yourself. This interactive training will focus on supporting those who work in the nonprofit field to care for themselves while caring for others.
Facilitated by Kaleigh Cornelison, MSW.

Recently, a good friend who is starting a new job soon asked me for my best piece of advice so she can start off on the right foot. After thinking it over, I went online to see experts recommend...and the advice out there is overwhelming. So I decided to make my own guide!
This list is a compilation of great resources I found online, my own knowledge as a social worker, and my experiences as a nonprofit professional. Feel free to add your input in the comments!Read more
