‘s (NPC) was designed to create a community of practice for nonprofit professionals, librarians, and social good focused technologists to explore and learn about virtual worlds such as Second Life, and to investigate the many ways in which organizations might utilize these unique environments. Through this community, NPC provides space to qualifying groups, holds regular meetings and network events, offers peer mentoring, and has created a cooperative, social-civic good focused learning environment that fosters outreach, education, fundraising, and impactful mission building, all in a virtual space.
