As you may have seen from my ecstatic tweets and Facebook posts, I was recently hired on full-time at YNPN. As a participant in their fellowship program over the last six months, I've been able to be part of their important work to strengthen the nonprofit sector. I couldn't be more excited to have the opportunity to do that work full-time!
YNPN's National Director and my boss and colleague Trish Tchume wrote a post to commemorate the occasion of our organization hiring its second full-time employee (me!):
"As a friend of mine who was around during the early days of YouTube put it, 'Everyone on the outside knows the name of the founder. But if you’re on the inside, every single person there knows that the company would’ve just remained a cool idea without employee #2.
Jamie Smith is that employee #2."
