As the 2018-2019 year is winding down, we're excited to see what next year will bring! Next up is a summer of planning for the 11th year of Youth Engaged in Philanthropy (YEP). In 2018-2019, with the introduction of the new Proactive Grant Committee, the Donor Relations & Fundraising Chair, the interactive Scavenger Hunt with VAC buses, and a few others, we're certain the 2019-2020 year of YEP will be one to remember for years to come.

NOTE - We are once again capping YEP membership! Over the last few years we've seen a large increase in membership. We've even run out of chairs a few times! Keeping this in mind along with our mission to be DeKalb County focused, we are giving each high school a certain amount of membership spots. Once those spots fill, additional applications from that school are added to a waiting list. Preference is given to returning members in good standing. Thank you for your interest and for understanding!

For questions, please contact YEP Staff Advisor Noah Nordbrock at 815-748-5383 or noah@dekalbccf.org.

“YEP has been a great opportunity to increase my community awareness and become more in tune with the needs and issues of my peers. Being a student-led organization showed me how important youth are and gave me the freedom to develop my leadership skills and take pride in serving. I know I’m well-equipped to impact any community I’m involved in!” - Madeleine Vinz Sycamore High School (Class of 2019)
