YEP, Young Emanuel Philanthropists, is our teen philanthropy board at Temple Emanuel. All Temple Emanuel 9th-12th graders may register and participate in YEP. The board will meet one Thursday evening each month to learn, plan, fundraise, and give back to the community. Participants will learn about smart, sustainable giving, team planning, and will have a unique opportunity to create a lasting change for a cause of their choice. See our meeting calendar here. Register for YEP - Registration Closes Oct 1st. Contact Lillian with questions: Lillian@TempleEmanuelMD.org
SSL Hours will be awarded for time spent doing active fundraising as well as additional hours for our retreat on April 28th-29th.
Please note that participation in YEP is completely independent of other teen opportunities such as KESTY and Upper School.
