What is Youth Engaged in Philanthropy (YEP)?

Youth Engaged in Philanthropy—a youth-led initiative under the Illinois Prairie Community Foundation—is a group of 25-30 high school students from Dewitt, Livingston, Logan and McLean Counties with a $10,000 philanthropic budget to allocate grant funds to local youth-focused initiatives. Currently, YEP is supported by a generous anonymous donor.  However, in 2015, YEP established an endowment fund to sustain the organization in the future.
