YOUTH IN PHILATHROPY
The CFSEA’s Youth in Philanthropy (YiP) program is a leadership development initiative for local high school students. Each participating high school forms a student-led committee that oversees the allocation of $20,000 in grants to local charitable organizations. The program was developed from the highly successful YiP program at the Winnipeg Foundation.
The school-based model allows the program to reach youth from a variety of socio-economic and cultural backgrounds. Many schools run the program as an extra-curricular activity that is open to any student, regardless of academic achievement or participation in other school programs. The best part about the program is the schools decide how the program will run, how many members it will have and who will be involved.
