YC2 is a youth philanthropy program offered to juniors and seniors from Lyons Township High School and Nazareth Academy. Curricula encourages students to explore our local community and its social challenges; learn about philanthropic theory; and engage in organizational evaluation and grantmaking. At the end of the program, students collectively award up to $15,000 to nonprofit organizations that further the mission and vision of Community Memorial Foundation.
YC2 starts with a kickoff event in December 2019 and concludes in May 2020. Applications are due November 8, 2019 by 5:00PM
