Remember when 2016 was shiny and new and you made professional development resolutions in a haze of champagne-fueled optimism? If your goals are seeming difficult in the cold light of winter day, you aren’t alone. According to this cheery article from U.S. News and World Report, 80% of all resolutions fail by the second week of February.

That’s why YNPN Boston is launching Nonprofit Squad Goals, a regular series of challenges to help you tackle your professional development goals in small, bite-sized pieces throughout the year. We’ll offer advice and give you a platform to network with other young nonprofit professionals who have committed to making 2016 the best year yet for their careers. You can join the challenge and share your journey by using the hashtag #npsquadgoals.
