If you are a high school student in central Illinois that wants to make a difference in your community, a McLean County non-profit wants your help.
Michele Evans with the Illinois Prairie Community Foundation indicates that Youth Engaged in Philanthropy is a group of high school students that are overseers of a grant cycle. The Illinois Prairie Community Foundation serves DeWitt, Logan, and Livingston Counties in addition to McLean County.
Evans says so far they only have members from McClean County and are seeking to add members from their other counties. Youth Engaged in Philanthropy meets once a month on Sundays and is a great way to help out your community.
