YEP is proud to introduce its first 40 Under 40, a select group of young professionals who pledged to give $40 per month for the duration of 2016 in order to:

• Have a direct and meaningful impact on the lives of underserved young people in New Orleans.
• Gain exclusive invitations to quarterly social and philanthropic events hosted by YEP.
• Help lead a community of like-minded, young and civically engaged leaders who are committed to strengthening New Orleans.

Together, this cohort will raise nearly $20,000 during 2016 that will provide education services, mentoring support, enrichment programming and employment readiness training to more than 1,000 of our city's most vulnerable youth.
