We ask that a trusted adult, whether they be a mentor, employer, family friend, teacher, counselor, family member, or community member, nominate a student and complete the form below in partnership with the student.
This nomination will give a student the opportunity to explore leadership abilities, participate in team-building activities, review grant applications, and award $25,000 to local community organizations. Students learn about community needs and assets, and gain an appreciation for charitable giving, community service, and civic engagement.
The YAP program is made possible through the generous support of The Triad Foundation.
Any community member is invited to submit nominations. The program is open to all students in Tompkins County. We encourage you to nominate local students who are entering their junior or senior year, enjoy community service, and are emerging leaders.
Nominations are due October 7th, 2020 by 9:00am. For more information, please contact Emma Terwilliger at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (607) 272-6286.
