PNP’s primary goal is to connect African Professionals in the Philadelphia by organizing monthly events that allows people to socialize, network and develop relationships. Our events are valuable to individuals looking to connect with other Africans in the area.


PNP provides access to a wealth of information useful to professionals at different stages in their careers. Our vision is to provide a community of African Professionals who are dedicated to helping each other succeed.


PNP encourages members to give back to the community by coordinating volunteer efforts with organizations that provide services to communities in the Philadelphia area. PNP also spotlights organizations and charities working in/with African communities through research and community development programs.
