Our Youth in Philanthropy initiative is designed to engage young people in civic and community decision-making while strengthening their understanding of philanthropy. We partner with donors, local volunteers, school administrators and youth organizations to help students realize their potential for giving back to their communities. We offer short- and long-term programs targeting grades from kindergarten through high school.
Our ten-month program allows youth grant-makers to increase their financial literacy, participate in career and job-training activities, connect on educational issues, build leadership skills, develop creative and analytical thinking and nourish community involvement through hands-on life experiences.
Our goal is to create a new generation of philanthropists. Our focus is on helping young people make an impact on their communities through philanthropy and to develop the skills they will need in the future as employers, employees, civic leaders and strong community citizens.
Programs currently operate in these communities:
