YC2 | Young Community Changemakers

Young Community Changemakers (YC2) is a leadership development program designed to educate and empower local youth to become our community’s next generation of philanthropists–those who give their time, talent and treasure for the common good.


Young Community Changemakers (YC2) is open to juniors and seniors at Lyons Township High School and Nazareth Academy. Students will participate in 8 program sessions that will explore philanthropic theory, organizational evaluation and grantmaking through the lens of our local community and its social challenges. They will review grant applications from local organizations, conduct site visits, and at the end of the semester-long program, award up to $15,000 to nonprofit organizations that further the mission and vision of Community Memorial Foundation.

Applications for the 2019 YC2 program are due November 7, 2018 by 5:00PM.





YC2 is sponsored by Community Memorial Foundation, The Burjan Family and Allow Good. Together we share a vision that young people need opportunities to develop the skills to be the future leaders and stewards of our community.
