Youth in Philanthropy Scholarship, Sponsored by the JUNIOR JWL

The Youth in Philanthropy Award, established in 2010, is presented yearly to a local high school senior in recognition of her dedication to philanthropy and community service.
Our decision committee searches for a female High School Senior residing in the Township of Huntington who exhibits all that the Junior Welfare League believes in and strives for: a sense of community, a giving spirit, compassion and a willingness to assist those in need.  It is our hope that her fine example will set a standard for action among their peers and create a lifelong desire to help others.

YIP Award Program Chair: Genoeffa Brady
