The 20 teens of this year’s YoPhI Teen Board kicked off their year with orientations and group meetings throughout September and October as they started their philanthropy journey. In its third year of existence, the Teen Board program is excited to host its first YoPhI Alumni Board made up of returning Teen Board members who, after going through their initial year-long grantmaking process, have returned for a deeper dive into philanthropy and another allocations round.
The Teen Board members are working hard to clarify their group values and create a mission statement that represents the change they want to see in the world. Next up for the teens is sending out their Request for Proposals (RFP). Be on the lookout for the RFP coming in early December and as the Teen Board members kick off fundraising in January 2021.
