We are excited to continue work with individuals from our communities in McLean, Livingston, Logan and DeWitt counties. Please submit this application by Sunday, April 23rd, 2017 in order to be considered for the next YEP cohort. This group will be limited to between 20-25 participants. It includes a time commitment of a 3 hour regular monthly meeting, and 1-2 hours a month for committee meetings, as needed. Additional time commitment per month may vary depending on committee work, review of grant applications, service opportunities, and other factors.
