Engaging Youth Peer Network: Teen Philanthropy—Models and Strategies for Ages 13-18

What are models to teach teens (grades 9-12) the foundations of philanthropy and lead them through the grantmaking process? Learn more about the Foundation for MetroWest’s Youth in Philanthropy program and how they engage high school youth in the surrounding communities in an experiential leadership and teen philanthropy program. Caryn Conway – an instructor for the Youth in Philanthropy program and Program Assistant at The Clowes Fund – will share more about this teen philanthropy model, what topics and level of content to present, youth leadership opportunities, and how to make the work fun and flexible for their schedules. Network co-chairs Neil and Cadence will also reflect on how they have engaged teens in their family philanthropy work.
