Young ChangeMakers (YCM) NYC

Young ChangeMakers (YCM)

YCM empowers youth by enabling them to turn their ideas into reality. With seed funding and support, many youths have stepped up to champion various causes and made a difference in their communities. Youths can also be part of a national panel that decides on each applicant’s seed funding of up to $3,000. As a YCM panellist, youths get valuable experience and hone their leadership skills by being mentors, leaders and decision makers.
