UPCOMING COMMUNITY EVENTS
YOUTH IN PHILANTHROPY
If you want to get involved in community service or are already part of a club but want to learn more about nonprofits, check out the YIP Needham program. YIP (Youth in Philanthropy) is a FREE program run by the Foundation for Metrowest that teaches high school students about how nonprofits work and how to be philanthropic in your community. The YIP Needham program is open to high schoolers from Needham and surrounding towns who work together to award $10,000 to local nonprofits after visiting them and using what we've learned to decide which ones should receive our funding. The spring session is Thursday nights, 7 to 8:30 pm at the Needham Historical Society. It runs 1/23 through 5/26. For more information about YIP, visit yipmetrowest.org. Applications are due on November 15. If you want to learn more, reach out to MHS juniors Ella Pezzullo, Sara Lautz or Gabby Christo. Thank you!
