NEWPORT — The Northeast Kingdom Young Professionals Network (NEK YPN) recently received a $3,000 grant from the Vermont Community Foundation’s Northeast Kingdom Fund.
The grant will help further NEK YPN’s mission of supporting young professionals both socially and professionally by expanding outreach efforts and promoting a new Welcome Wagon Program.
“We are really excited to launch a new chapter of the Welcome Wagon Project here in the NEK,” said Maire Folan. “It will complement our efforts to connect residents and newcomers and build social capital in our communities”
The NEK YPN is a network for young professionals living and working in and around the NEK.
It strives to bring together all professionals that value connection and collaboration in work and play.
They see ‘young’ as subjective and the group encourages everyone to engage.
The Northeast Kingdom Fund is a permanent philanthropic resource dedicated to supporting the people and communities of Caledonia, Essex, and Orleans Counties.Are you on Instagram? Cool. So are we. CLICK HERE to follow us for a behind the scenes look at Newport Dispatch.
