This gathering convened by California Community Foundation, Jewish Community Foundation of Los Angeles, Southern California Grantmakers, & Youth Philanthropy Connect, was designed to develop, enhance, and catalyze youth & next gen philanthropy in our region and among participants. Attendees ranged greatly in experience, from those already deeply engaged in grantmaking to those just looking to get started! YPC was excited to provide this event for participants to connect, share experiences, and learn together!

Amy Wu is a junior at Claremont McKenna College, majoring in Mathematics and Economics with a Computer Science minor. She is passionate about social entrepreneurship, having started her own social venture and mentored other teenage social entrepreneurs in high school through LearnServe International. Amy started Project Cultural Crossroads to address the lack of support for local immigrant communities, facilitating cross-cultural dialogue and tackling the mental health stigma. She has continued pursuing this passion in college by bringing social case competitions to campus, TA-ing a social innovation course, helping manage the Changemaker Fund for student-led social impact initiatives, and facilitating impact measurement workshops. She hopes that her post-college plans combine tech entrepreneurship with socially impactful work!
