What is Youth in Philanthropy (YiP)?
YiP is a program designed to introduce local high school students to philanthropy and community development. The program provides hands-on experience that benefits both participating students and local charities.
How does YiP work?
Youth Advisory Committees at each participating high school discuss their values and goals for the year, research and interview potential charities and decide how to allocate $5,000 in grants to charities of their choice. They present written recommendations to the Board of The Winnipeg Foundation for final approval.
What is a High School Philanthropy Fund?
Each Youth Advisory Committee also establishes a High School Philanthropy Fund and the annual income earned from this endowment is added to the $5,000 provided by the Foundation. The amount each committee grants gradually increases every year and the impact of each student who participates in the program is felt in the community for years to come.
For more information about the YiP program, Summer Internship Program, alumni opportunities and grantee info, visit the YiP website or contact Tolu Ilelaboye, Youth in Philanthropy Convenor, at 204.944.9474 or email.
