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, treasure and ties for the common good.

YC2 is a youth philanthropy program offered to juniors and seniors from Hinsdale Central High SchoolLyons Township High School, Nazareth Academy, and Riverside Brookfield High School. Curricula encourages students to explore our local community and its social needs; learn about philanthropic theory; and engage in organizational evaluation and grantmaking. Students conduct site visits to evaluate grant requests and award up to $30,000 ($15,000 per cohort) to further the mission and vision of Community Memorial Foundation.
