Alliance Young Professionals Network Board

The Alliance Young Professionals Network (YPN) gathers philanthropic-minded civic leaders who believe education is important, are aware of the critical issues facing our public schools, and want to help students in LA’s most under-served communities.  This network is led by the YPN Board, which leads fundraising & volunteer programs to connect young professionals in Los Angeles with initiatives to help school communities and mentor students.
