The objectives of YPC are to promote youth development and community leadership through experiences of philanthropy, support local youth initiatives, and engage youth and adults in partnership through giving and serving the communities in which they live.

  • The importance of addressing mental health issues among youth, particularly for those who have been victims of trauma.
  • That building relationships and making connections significantly contributes to addressing trauma and mental health concerns.
