YOUTHadelphia seeks youth board members

YOUTHadelphia is the Philadelphia Foundation's youth in philanthropy (YIP) program. YOUTHadelphia's mission is to give Philadelphia teens opportunities to build youth leadership through philanthropy.

In general, YOUTHadelphians identify issues of public concern and together make grants to nonprofit organizations addressing those issues. YOUTHadelphia trains young people to wisely distribute up to $50,000 in grants by conducting research, identifying funding criteria and priorities and managing an application process from start to finish. 

Teenagers 14 to 18 living in Philadelphia and interested in being youth philanthropists are encouraged to submit a completed application to the Philadelphia Foundation no later than May 27, 2019.
