Events

Since its inception in June of 2004, a primary mission of the Young Professionals of Fond du Lac is to sponsor monthly events that allow its members opportunities to network in both social and professional settings. Members can then have an opportunity to invite guests and learn more about the mission and goals of YPF.

GET INVOLVED!

Attending YPF events is a great way to find out what YPF is all about. You will meet monthly with collegues and friends while continuing to expand and diversify your network. Come see what the excitement is all about!

Green Dot Bystander Training and Mental Health Month Overview @ Fond du Lac Family YMCA

In partnership with Fond du Lac Family YMCA, Fond du Lac Women’s Fund is offering Green Dot Bystander Intervention Training sessions available to anyone, 18 and older, wishing to attend. This session in particular will be inclusive of members from the Young Professionals of Fond du Lac (YPF) and members will then get an opportunity to hear from NAMI Fond du Lac County after the training.

The Green Dot one-hour overview training is an interactive presentation that focuses on what everyone can do in their daily lives to decrease power-based personal violence throughout Fond du Lac County.

By attending a FREE Green Dot training session, you will:

+ Gain tools to apply and use every day for preventing violence, like the 3 D’s – Direct. Distract. Delegate.

+ Connect with like-minded individuals in your community who are committed to helping others and make our community safer.

Please RSVP to reserve your spot. There is no charge to attend.

 

We are only able to offer this training through the generous monetary support of our 2020 FDL Says No More Green Dot Bystander Intervention Training project sponsors: Green Bay Packers Foundation; Grande Cheese Company; Society Insurance; and Fond du Lac Area Foundation.

About this Event

The Power of the Purse is our largest annual event and attracts 400 attendees. During the 2020 luncheon, we will feature keynote speaker Mike Domitrz of Milwaukee’s Center for Respect, honor a local woman with our annual Women of Achievement Award and give a report to the community on our previous year’s accomplishments. Proceeds from the event specifically support our efforts to educate, empower and inspire women and girls through grant-making, focused initiatives and advocacy efforts.

Although we historically feature a woman as keynote, this year’s event speaker fits with the direction of our Fond du Lac Says No More initiative in striving to engage more men and boys in ending violence against women and children. Mike founded The Date Safe Project (now The Center for Respect) in Milwaukee and conducts thousands of training sessions annually.
