The Youth Giving Project is a youth philanthropy program that teaches young people leadership skills and the importance of community involvement. YGP's mission is "youth funding ideas to inspire and impact their communities." The Youth Giving Project is a collaborative program between BYI, Bozeman Area Community Foundation, and Foundant Technologies.
Ten local middle and high school students will evaluate and award over $10,000 in grants to fund projects in their community that they feel represent the perspectives and values of their peers.
Students will meet 2-3 times monthly after-school, with one meeting being a service project or site visit to learn more about local nonprofits. Students receive a small stipend for their internship with the Youth Giving Project, as well as great skills in not only grant making, but leadership and team work.
Applications for members of the Youth Giving Project are open until December 1st. The program runs through the end of the school year.
THANK YOU for helping build the next generation of philanthropists!
