Please go ahead and apply for the Youth in Philanthropy program if you are a junior or senior to meet the Sept. 14 deadline.
The Fort Bend Chamber of Commerce, partnering with The George Foundation invites Fort Bend ISD high school juniors and seniors to participate in the 2011-2012 Youth in Philanthropy (YIP) Program.
This year long program brings together junior and senior high school students from across Fort Bend County and provides them the opportunity to experience how volunteerism and philanthropy coexist to serve their community. The YIP Team participates in site visits and volunteer projects with area nonprofit organizations to increase their knowledge of the Fort Bend County nonprofit sector.
The 2011-2012 program is different than past years in that students will make individual application to the program. The YIP Team will be composed of 100 students being selected from the pool of applicants. Any high school junior or senior attending a Fort Bend County high school is eligible to apply. Deadline for applying is September 14.. Should you have any questions, please send an email to: askFBISD@fortbendisd.com.
