PEER COMMUNITIES

CONNECT. NETWORK. INSPIRE. You belong!

PEER COMMUNITIES

Peer Communities (PC) are groups of staff who come together around a shared interest in or affinity with a particular membership, program, or service area. Staff who participate in peer communities seek to share knowledge, learn, and innovate with each other.

 

PEER COMMUNITY STRUCTURE (Chapter 41)

Chapter 41 has chosen to structure Peer Communities in three (3) neighborhoods in our Alliance:

Each PC has it's own Statewide Leader, then within each neighborhood Peer Community is a Neighborhood Leader. These staff are responsible for ensuring communication and networking happens throughout the state.

Any full or part time employee of a Y can join a Peer Community. It's free! Generally speaking, new full time management staff are automatically added to the YPN Peer Community once they are hired. Your local HR department takes care of that!

To officially declare your interest in joining a peer community within YPN Chapter 41, please contact your statewide leader, JJ Raflik at jraflik@fdlymca.org
