Young Professional Leadership Network

The Young Professional Leadership Network (YPLN) is a CAPMT initiative dedicated to supporting new and emerging California music teachers in the early stages of their careers. By creating a statewide network of young musicians, the YPLN seeks to increase opportunities for mentorship and professional development, equipping young teachers to become successful music leaders and advocates for arts education in their communities.
