"The Summer Institute for Youth Leadership is awesome! I learned how nonprofits work and that I can help improve my community by being philanthropic and getting more involved. Everybody can take away something very useful from this program."
- Summer Institute for Youth Leadership Participant
The Summer Institute for Youth Leadership is designed for teenagers who are looking to make an impact in their community. This fun, four-day summer program introduces students to the importance of active community involvement. Along the way participants discover a keen awareness of their own potential and develop the skills necessary to become successful leaders. Similar to our Youth in Philanthropy program, participants learn how to evaluate local nonprofit organizations, conduct site visits, and work as a team to award a grant to the nonprofit of their choice. Guest speakers attend sessions to help students with real-world skills ranging from how to create a résumé to how to balance a checkbook.
