Maria Carson; [email protected]
The Samuel M. Goldston Teen Philanthropy project is for Jewish High Schoolers who want to make a positive impact in the greater Pittsburgh community. In just three hours a month, Goldston participants learn about leadership development, fundraising, philanthropy, and social justice through a vibrant Jewish lens. The Samuel M Goldston Teen Philanthropy Project looks GREAT on college applications and allows teens to really understand how and why philanthropy can be used as a force for good in their communities.
Together participants will explore:
- Identify problems in their community,
- Engage with local organizations to understand the mechanics of non-profits
- Contribute as well as fundraise money for local organizations
- Allocate money to support their chosen organizations’ missions
Through monthly meetings as well as a justice-themed overnight, participants will develop important leadership skills such as critical thinking, time management, logistics, and public speaking while fostering deeper relationships with other Jewish teens.
Program Fee: $250
