YPC is a new and exciting way for youth engaged in philanthropy to connect, network, and learn together.   This year, we are hosting 5 regional gatherings across the country with amazing partners in every region.  To learn more about other gatherings, click here.  We encourage you to choose which region(s) works best for you and attend!  

 With sessions geared towards youth philanthropists engaged in or excited to learn about grantmaking ages 8-21 and the adults who guide them, attendees will be able to connect with their peers and work collaboratively in a unique learning environment. Make the most of your conference experience with Philanthropy ROCKstars, breakout  sessions, networking and teambuilding opportunities, the YPC Giving Circle, and more!
