Youth Engaged in Philanthropy

Youth Engaged in Philanthropy, YEP, are a group of students from Fortuna Union High School and Academy of the Redwoods who are interested in bringing positive change to our community through the power of grantmaking. We completed a needs assessment of our peers and community members and we are seeking to fund projects which will address either of the following:

  • We need a place to feel safe. Projects that we are interested in funding include but are not limited to sports, or arts.
  • We need resources for homeless youth that are under 21 years of age. This includes personal needs such as clothing, food, or advocacy.
