Youth Funding Youth Ideas: Human-Centered Youth Philanthropy

Publication Date: April 22, 2015

Authors: Andrea Juarez

The Director of Operations for Youth Funding Youth Ideas (YFYI), Andrea Juarez, describes the youth-led philanthropic organization. Youth’s ideas, desires, needs and experiences are the catalyst and center of its model. What makes YFYI unique is the understanding that community driven solutions are the key to institutional change; relationship building leads to better results and success is found in the journey. This is a blog entry from Philanthropy Front and Center San Francisco, a publication of the Foundation Center San Francisco. It is the first post in a three-part series showcasing youth-led philanthropy programs in the Bay Area.
