Alumni Highlight

"Once our mentors and teachers took a step back, it was really eye opening to see what we could accomplish on our own and everything that we did as a group." – Ben, Hopkinton YIP Alumni

"This is what I love about YIP. A single conversation can lead to the start of change in a community, as I was lucky enough to witness this past year. YIP has given me so many amazing opportunities to meet other young philanthropists and change-makers that I would never have met otherwise." – Sofia, Nashoba Brooks School YIP Alumni

There are a number of other ways you can stay involved with YIP including donating to the program, signing up for the Foundation’s newsletter, and following us on social media! Contact us to learn more.

My mindset on the needs that exist in my own community has completely changed and I can't wait to take what I have learned in YIP and use it to give back in a more meaningful way - for all of my life.

– Ashwini, Sudbury YIP Alumni
