    Hi I’m Jill and I serve as the Program Director and primary contact for the Youth Philanthropy Initiative of Indiana (YPII). Locally based in Indianapolis, Indiana and nationally connected, YPII is a signature program of the Indiana Philanthropy Alliance. The mission of this unique statewide collaborative is “to grow lifelong philanthropist who share of their time, talent, and treasure for the common good.” YPII encourages foundations and youth-serving organizations to engage youth in four pillars of philanthropy: serving, giving, leading, and engaging within their communities. As Program Director, I oversee YPII’s role in providing youth philanthropy workshops, resources, technical assistance and best practices to nonprofits and foundations. I started working with nonprofits way back in high school at the Lake County Public Library, now with over 16 years of full-time experience in the nonprofit arena, I’ve focused on program and curriculum development, training/evaluation, grant writing, and nonprofit management. I’m a lifelong learner who is passionate about community collaboration and empowering young people to take action and make a difference!
