About YEP

Youth Engaged in Philanthropy (YEP)

Youth Engaged in Philanthropy (YEP) is a program in which approximately 20 high school students allocate grant funds to local youth-focused or youth-run initiatives. YEP builds leadership and teamwork skills while engaging participants in a unique, philanthropic experience. The 2013 – 2014 school year marks an inaugural grant cycle for YEP, and we are very proud of the work these young people are doing!
