Samuel M. Goldston Teen Philanthropy Project: Grades 9-12

Would you like to change the world today?

The new Samuel M. Goldston Teen Philanthropy Project is a pilot program for 9th-12th graders, focused on philanthropy in theory and practice. Together, a cohort of approximately twenty teens will explore philanthropy as a Jewish concept under the umbrella of tikkun olam—world repair. Together they will:

• 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 weekend retreat, participants will develop important leadership skills such as critical thinking, time management, logistics, and public speaking while fostering deeper relationships with other Jewish teens.

Requirements:

Program Fee: $250
• Participants must be entering 9th grade or above
• All fellows are required to meet a $150 fundraising minimum
• Participants are expected to complete community service hours as part of the experience

Contributions are matched through a generous grant from Edward and Linda Goldston (z’l) in memory of their son, Samuel.
