Youth Philanthropy Connect (YPC) offers two great ways to more engaged in our work. We are currently seeking more youth to be engaged in our Leadership Team, who provides guidance on YPC programs, resources, and events, both in-person and remote. Applications are also open for the YPC Fellowship. Fellows advise the strategy and speak on behalf of YPC. Professional development is a key component of both opportunities. Applications for both roles are due by Friday, August 4th.
Leadership Team Member
Our Youth Leadership Team of youth ages 12-21 provides guidance to Youth Philanthropy Connect throughout the year and helps develop learning opportunities, through both in-person events and remote learning. Members of the team serve one year terms with no term limits. YPC event attendance is strongly encouraged; partial need-based scholarships for event attendance are available for leadership team members. For the 2017-2018 year, YPC will focus on 1-2 regional events and one larger, international conference. This team meets via video conference call the first Monday of each month at 6:00 p.m. PST, and each Leadership Team member is required to participate in at least eight (8) meetings per year.

Youth Philanthropy Fellowship
YPC has re-envisioned the Fellowship opportunity to accommodate busy schedules with a focus on advising YPC strategy and professional development! The fellows provide insights to YPC staff and the Leadership Team in the overall strategy of YPC, partnering with several other fellows for a period of one year. Fellows work remotely with the Director of Youth Philanthropy and the Graduate Assistants using their computers to gain professional development experience through fireside chats with key sector leaders, provide direction to YPC, and act as a spokesperson for YPC at various events throughout the year. Fellows are required to be undergraduate students maintaining a minimum GPA of 3.0. Review the YPC Fellow job description.
