Deadline for Applications Extended to December 15!


YOUTHadelphia, the youth advisory committee of the Fund for Children, includes up to 20 high school students from a wide range of Philadelphia neighborhoods, schools and youth organizations.


YOUTHadelphia engages youth in grantmaking activities and provides leadership-development opportunities as well as a forum for youth dialogue and action. Last year the group awarded $125,000 for 13 youth-led and youth-engaged projects addressed four areas chosen by the participants: Service and Advocacy for Homeless Teens; Substance Abuse Prevention and Treatment; Teen Pregnancy Services; Post-Secondary (College and Vocational) Preparation.

Student participants say this about the program:


"You have a chance to build your public speaking, teamwork, organizational, critical thinking and analytical skills. And it helped me give to my community in an area where I felt it would help." - D'Angelo Cameron


"It taught me a lot about philanthropy, and it was a lot of fun. It's a great program." - Sean Keely-Cain


"My favorite part was meeting a new group of people who have the same interest as me. " - Asia West


"I like it that my opinion and that of other students changed our community to be better for youth." - Shakira Todd


"It felt empowering. It's really cool and a great preparation for the business world!" - Baseerah Watson


Youth in Grades 9, 10 and 11 who are committed to civic participation are invited to apply. Interested applicants should complete the application and return it, along with a letter of recommendation, by December 15, 2011. The application also is available on the Join YOUTHadelphia page on The Philadelphia Foundation website.
