Young Nonprofit Professionals - Training Nashville's Volunteer Leaders

*Thanks to Industrious, the June YNP event will be free to attend! See below for details.*

As young professionals in Nashville, it is easy to get caught in the daily grind. We go to work early, leave late, and somehow find time to meet new people and enjoy events around town. Your schedule may be full of opportunities to advance your career, connect with others, and have a little fun, but are you also taking the time to give back to the community in tangible and impactful ways?

If you’re searching for ways to give back in Nashville, come to CNM’s June YNP event to learn more about the hundreds of local volunteer opportunities that will allow you to make an impact in our city. Learn about ongoing community needs, service opportunities, and ways that you can take on a leadership role in the Nashville volunteer community.

This event will feature Julie Abbott, the Community Partner Program Manager at Hands on Nashville, as she talks about HON’s crucial role as a capacity builder for volunteer programs in Nashville. HON has about 300 opportunities a month on their calendar and about 2000 volunteer signups. In 2017 HON connected or referred over 106,000 volunteers to service projects in Middle Tennessee. She will introduce you to the Hands On Connect platform for volunteer engagement in Nashville and teach us all how to become “team leaders” so we can recruit our friends and colleagues to make an even greater impact in the city.

This event will be hosted by Industrious, a provider of premium coworking and shared office space here in Nashville. They are opening up a new location downtown and were willing to host our event and provide the food and drink for the evening!

Goal: Raise $10,000 for Martha O’Bryan Center

What is Music City Chef Throwdown?

Local chefs making an impact on Nashville’s culinary scene are going head-to-head at Music City Chef Throwdown to benefit Martha O’Bryan Center. NextUP - Martha O’Bryan Center Ambassadors is challenging Nashville chefs to showcase how an amazing meal can be made with the simplest of ingredients. Local food experts will choose a champion and guests will choose their favorite.

Music City Chef Throwdown is the annual fundraiser produced by NextUP benefiting Martha O’Bryan Center.

Formerly known as Foodbank Throwdown, and unique from other food events, chefs receive a list of low-cost, widely available ingredients to create their dish, and cook against the clock to present their meals to the judges - LIVE! Our judges will choose the 2018 Throwdown Champion, while our guests choose their favorite as the People’s Choice Award, and the lowest cost meal will be awarded the Spirit Award. Guests will enjoy a sample from each chef team, no crowds or waiting in line, and “front row” access to the action.

Martha O'Bryan Center is located in East Nashville, in the heart of Cayce Place, less than a mile from downtown Nashville, an area comprised of luxury condos, thriving businesses, and state government offices.

The average household income for families in Cayce Place is $7,494, 70 percent below the national poverty threshold for a family of 4. 90 percent of households are headed by a single woman; 59 percent of residents are under the age of 18.
