AFP is committed to engaging young professionals and youth exploring philanthropy and building their fundraising careers.  AFP recognizes the importance of outreach to young professionals in order to assure that effective and ethical fundraising is practiced well into the future.

Serving Young Professionals

In order to serve our young professionals, men and women 30 and under working in development, AFP created the Next Generation Committee.  The goal of the Next Generation Committee is to seek ways to engage, serve and support young professionals to help you be successful, develop your careers and become active in AFP.

The Next Generation Committee works to provide Young Professionals with:

  1. Web resources tailored to your career stage
  2. Mentoring opportunities, tools and resources
  3. Value and relevance for your Young Professional membership
  4. Activities that fit your career stage at AFP's International Conference, and companion resources for your chapter

Come back often to check out new resources that have been added.  And if you have questions, would like information, are interested in joining the committee or just have feedback, please email nextgen@afpnet.org and someone from the committee will be happy to talk with you.
