Give back to your community.
Expand your perspective.
Be a change-maker.

By joining a Youth in Philanthropy (YIP) program you can make a positive impact in your community while teaming up with other students from across MetroWest.

Unlike other volunteer opportunities, YIP puts the power of decision making in your hands and empowers you to be a change-maker. The program provides you with a skill-set you can draw upon throughout your life.
