YEP is able to provide quality services to some of New Orleans’ most vulnerable youth thanks to our current foundation and agency funders as well as our generous.
40 under 40
YEP’s 2017 40 Under 40 cohort marks its second anniversary and is made up of a select group of young professionals who pledged to give $40 per month for the duration of 2017 in order to:
- Have a direct and meaningful impact on the lives of underserved young people in New Orleans.
- Gain exclusive invitations to quarterly social and philanthropic events hosted by YEP.
- Help lead a community of like-minded, young and civically engaged leaders who are committed to strengthening New Orleans.
Together, this cohort will raise nearly $20,000 during 2017 that will provide education services, mentoring support, enrichment programming and employment readiness training to more than 1,000 of our city’s most vulnerable youth. YEP’s 40 Under 40 fundraising initiative was launched in 2016.
