NORWICH – The Norwich High School Youth Philanthropy Council is a foundation at Norwich High School comprised of 10 upperclassmen. During the fall semester, students completed a non-credit course taught by community leaders in the fields of non-profit organizations, foundations and grant making. The Council, now in its second year, was developed and supported through the collaborative efforts of the Upstate Institute at Colgate University, Chenango United Way, The Community Foundation for South Central New York, and Norwich High School. In 2010, the YPC will distribute a total of $10,000 to not-for-profit agencies in Chenango County. The money being granted by the Youth Philanthropy Council was donated by Chenango United Way, The Community Foundation for South Central New York, and NBT Bank.
