Youth Philanthropy Project � The Community Foundation

Youth Philanthropy Project � The Community Foundation: "What is the Youth Philanthropy Project?

The Youth Philanthropy Project was started in 1998 by The Community Foundation to encourage student volunteerism and philanthropy by engaging young people in decision-making about the distribution of grant dollars. A steering committee, comprised of local high school students, is responsible for awarding grants that will support community service projects planned and implemented by their peers. Our motivation is to encourage young people from across the region to develop leadership skills through participation in and promotion of community service."
