YPLF Alumni

The YPLF program was founded by the American Philatelic Society in 2009 to identify and support the best and brightest aspiring philatelists. Fellows have been an integral part of American Philatelic Society stamp shows since the program’s inception. Current and alumni Fellows contribute by: selling stamps and covers in the YPLF booth, appraising collections at “Stamps in Your Attic”, and supporting youth education efforts in the “Discovery Cove” youth area. Additionally, Fellows experience all of the exciting elements of APS stamp shows, while learning from philatelic leaders, meeting fellow collectors, and interacting with current and alumni fellows.
