Welcome to Youth Engaged in Philanthropy (YEP)!
Youth Engaged in Philanthropy (YEP) begins its eighth year as a Community Foundation initiative in the fall of 2016. High school youth from across DeKalb County participate in monthly meetings, leadership activities, and volunteer outreach events to understand the need for philanthropy in DeKalb County. The youth are familiarized with the nonprofit sector and introduced to grantmaking. Through youth led meetings, the YEP committee learns to analyze grant applications, conduct site visits, and identify the potential impact on other youth in DeKalb County. YEP grants support projects and programs that benefit youth in DeKalb County.
