BLOOMINGTON – High school students in McLean, DeWitt, Livingston and Logan counties are sought to participate in Youth Engaged in Philanthropy (YEP) during the 2021-2022 school year. An initiative of the Illinois Prairie Community Foundation, YEP is a program in which high school students learn about philanthropy by allocating grant funds to local nonprofits.
YEP provides opportunities to build leadership and teamwork skills while engaging participants in a unique, philanthropic experience. A nonprofit group, YEP funds local youth-run and/or youth-oriented programs. Members will be responsible for developing grant guidelines and awarding a total of $10,000 to selected youth-focused programs.
The 2021-2022 school year will be the nineth for YEP. The group will be limited to 20-25 participants.
The online application is available at http://www.ciyep.org/membership-application-1 and must be completed by April 3, 2021.
Individuals selected to be a part of the 2021-2022 YEP group will be notified in May.
