Young Philanthropist Project Seeks Members

Adams & Broomfield Counties, CO – The Young Philanthropist Project (YPP) of Adams & Broomfield Counties, a group of philanthropists in their 20s, 30s and early 40s that work to reach out to the community in support of CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) of Adams & Broomfield Counties, is currently seeking new members.

The group’s goal is to raise awareness about child abuse and neglect and support for CASA in a way that allows participants to have fun, network and give back to the community. The YPP strives to create events that are fresh and appealing to young people interested in making a difference in the lives of children. YPP events are not only a fun and exciting way to raise funds for CASA of Adams & Broomfield Counties, but they also provide exceptional networking opportunities for young professionals and philanthropists.

For a suggested annual donation of just $25 per year, young philanthropists can join the organization as a YPP Associate and enjoy:

* The opportunity to serve on a YPP committee
* Advance notice of YPP events
* A listing as a YPP Advocate on the YPP webpage
* A YPP Facebook widget for your personal email signature
* An official YPP name badge
* A CASA "Stop Child Abuse" car magnet
* The quarterly YPP newsletter

YPP Meetings take place at 6:30 pm on the third Thursday of every month at different ‘hot spots’ throughout Adams & Broomfield Counties.

The YPP is sponsored by Kiddie Academy of Brighton. For more information about the YPP visit www.casa17th.org/ypp or call 303.655.3927.

CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) of Adams and Broomfield Counties is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization that trains, supports and supervises community volunteers who advocate for the best interests of innocent child victims of abuse and neglect. Each year, in Adams and Broomfield Counties, there are over 1,300 children who have been physically, sexually or emotionally abused or neglected, and who are in desperate need of a caring, committed CASA Volunteer to speak up for their best interests. In Adams and Broomfield Counties , there are over 200 CASA volunteers, and we are in need of more great community members to become advocates for children.
