Youth in Philanthropy
Priority deadline to apply is November 15; rolling admissions follow.
The Foundation for MetroWest’s Youth in Philanthropy (YIP) program is an experiential leadership development program designed to empower and educate local youth to become our community’s next generation of philanthropists – those who give their time, talent, and treasure for the common good. As participants of YIP, students learn about needs in our community, visit local nonprofits, and grant up to $10,000 to nonprofits benefiting youth.
This free, 17-week program is for high school students who live or learn in MetroWest. YIP will meet on Tuesday evenings, from 7:00 to 8:30pm, at Grange Hall in Sudbury. The program begins on January 14 and runs through May 26. (Full Schedule) For more information about YIP and to apply, visit yipmetrowest.org.
