The Brandywine Health Foundation is seeking youth between the ages of 14 and 18 to join the Coatesville Area Youth Philanthropy Program (CAYPP). Teens who are accepted to the program will act as board members and program officers for a special fund, which is generously underwritten by Citadel. The CAYPP members will learn new non-profit and business skills and will have the opportunity to lead and make important funding decisions for area non-profits. This year, CAYPP will include more opportunities for the youth to get involved and give back to the Greater Coatesville community. Check out the application here and please share with others you think might be interested.
Beginning in the fall, the 12-15 members selected to be a part of CAYPP will meet regularly throughout the school year to learn how philanthropy works, and research and discuss a myriad of possible philanthropic goals to improve their community before deciding to fund programs that focus on improving public safety.
