Who would you help if you had money to give away?
That’s what the kids of YEP STL learned over the past school year. Through YEP (Youth Engaged in Philanthropy), high school students from across a range of school districts and backgrounds come together to learn about philanthropy, the needs of their community, and the ways nonprofits are trying to help people in need. Thanks to a generous gift from First Bank, the students were able to work as a team to award thousands of dollars to organizations of their choosing.
This year, grants were awarded to: Kingdom House; Lift For Life Gym; Little Bit Foundation; Living Well Foundation; LovetheLOU; and Vitendo4Africa. Keep an eye on our Facebook page to learn more about each of these organizations and the incredible programs they will put their money toward.
