YEP STL Was Created by Youth for Youth
YEP STL is a philanthropy initiative that encourages St. Louis area high school students to get involved in supporting local nonprofit organizations that serve youth.

YEP STL members work together as a team to give grant money to youth charities. We work with mentors who show us how the process works. We develop a grant application and charities apply for grant money. Then we review their applications, and decide which charities we think should get funds, and how much.

First Bank is the presenting sponsor for the YEP STL program.
