We’re pleased to share with you the schedule and resources from the 2016 Youth Philanthropy Connect International Conference. The conference was held July 7-9, 2016 at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel® in Anaheim, CA for youth philanthropists (ages 8-21) and the adults who support them. Our youth attendees researched, discussed, and presented grant proposals from local nonprofits. YPC is pleased to announce that full grants of $2,500 each were awarded to GOALS and OCCCO.

Philanthropy is hard work and can contribute to the world in many ways! Together, we will split into teams to complete these 3 service projects in service to those across the world.  

  • Build 3-D printed hands with Enable Community Foundation that will be sent to youth and adults across the world who need upper limb prosthetics.

  • Make paracord bracelets for soldiers oversees that will assist them with multiple feet of paracord--allowing makeshift solutions for emergency situations --and to let our service men and women know you care.  We will donate the bracelets to Operation Gratitude.

  • Compile helping bags for the homeless to support basic needs for people experiencing homelessness in Southern California.
