Springfield City YEP
Welcome

The Springfield Youth Empowerment Project involves eight public and private school districts in the Springfield area, including Bailey, Catholic, Central, Glendale, Greenwood, Hillcrest, Kickapoo, and Parkview. Our YEP was established in 2001 as the first Youth Empowerment Project in the Ozarks region, and our YEP has granted over $40,000 to youth-oriented projects in the Springfield region. Thanks for stopping by! Check out our upcoming events, and see our grant application on our documents page to learn more about our grantmaking process.

  • YEPO - The Grant Making Process
    This was a handy outline the YEP in Ozark (YEPO) created for their small group presentations at the Youth Philanthropy Conference this year. I think it's a very helpful resource for YEP chapters who are working to host a grant round this year.
