YPN Peer Communities

Based within every YPN chapter but regionally and nationally connected, peer communities enable YPN members to connect with peers throughout the Y Movement. Bringing people together around a shared interest in a particular area or job function fosters connections that lead to peer-to-peer learning. In their peer communities, YPN members are able to discuss emerging practices, troubleshoot common challenges, learn innovative approaches, and inspire collaboration.

Peer communities are groups of staff who come together around a shared interest in or affinity with a particular membership or program area, and any full or part-time employees of a Y can join as many peer communities as their interests and time allow.

To join a peer community within your local YPN chapter, Y staff follow these two easy steps:

  1. Log on to Link.
  2. In your profile, select your area (or areas) of interest.
