Thank you to our 2022 Sponsors!

Last month, 250 people came together to celebrate the power of young leaders at our POP! Power of Philanthropy Bash. After a night of music, fun, and hearing from YouthRoots alumnae on their experience in various YouthRoots programs, the event raised over $130,000! We’re so grateful for the YouthRoots community coming together to support young leaders changing the world. 

We want to extend a special thank you to the sponsors of the event for their belief in the power of youth voice and continued support of YouthRoots!
