How Can You Help?
Currently, we are depending on the generosity of our donors to keep the Youth Passion Project running. Your donations are 100% tax deductible for US federal income tax purposes and will help the Youth Passion Project expand into new communities and develop a broad set of courses.
As a 501(c)(3) exempt non-profit, we issue regular reports detailing how our funds are used. Unlike many other charities with large overhead costs, the Youth Passion Project never uses donated funds to compensate or pay our leadership or faculty. By donating with PayPal, 100% of your donation goes to helping expand our project and improve instruction quality.
Once your donation is processed, the PayPal giving fund will provide a CWA (contemporaneous written acknowledgement) of your donation for your tax filings. If you would like your donation to be recognized, you can share your name and email with us through PayPal.
A Message from the Team
Hi everyone, we’re the Youth Passion Project!
The Youth Passion Project is a free educational resource run by high schoolers that provides learning opportunities through Zoom for young students all over the world. When the COVID-19 lockdown first started back in March 2020, we gathered to create this platform to spread their passions in hopes of giving younger students a fulfilling learning experience.
Our course list was small at first: Origami, Scratch, Creative Writing, and Spanish. With each addition of a new course, more high schoolers chimed in about what they wanted to teach. Now, thanks to our dedicated team of instructors, we offer a variety of courses including 3D Modeling, Baking, Stand-up Comedy, and so much more.
What started as a local project transformed into something bigger than we ever imagined. With over 100 volunteers, we plan on keeping our courses free of charge now and always. Our instructors and global team members have put in thousands of hours to keep our project up and running for more students to come.
We want to make education accessible to any student in any part of the world. We believe in the importance of maintaining deep and communal connections between our instructors and students.
