YOUTHadelphia seeks participants for next school year

YOUTHadelphia, the youth advisory committee of the Fund for Children, includes high school students from a wide range of Philadelphia neighborhoods, schools, and youth organizations.

YOUTHadelphia engages youth in grantmaking activities and provides leadership development opportunities as well as a forum for youth dialogue and action. YOUTHadelphia Spring 2014 awarded $50,000 for ten youth-led and youth-engaged projects addressing four areas chosen by the participants: Arts & Culture, Mental Health, Mentoring, and Young Women Empowerment.
High school-aged youth who are committed to civic participation are invited to apply. Interested applicants should complete the application and return it, along with a letter of recommendation, by August 1st. The application is also available on the Join YOUTHadelphia page on The Philadelphia Foundation website. Interviews will take place during the month of August.
Youth interested in either the Fall or Spring Committee are encouraged to submit an application. Both committees will be decided upon by September 1st.
