E3 Youth Philanthropy, a program of the Los Altos Community Foundation, is now accepting applications from students entering 10th or 11th grade this fall.
E3 educates, engages, and empowers local youth to create positive change in their communities. Students who live in Los Altos, Los Altos Hills or Mountain View, and/or attend school in one of those three communities are welcome to apply. Applications will be accepted March 1 – 30, 2018.
