The Center for Arab American Philanthropy is a recipient of our 2015 Feedback Fund. Recently they shared these insights with us.
Since its inception, our Teen Grantmaking Initiative (TGI) has focused on empowering high school youth to become leaders in their community. This year we implemented a new curriculum in partnership with YouthRoots, a youth development organization based in Colorado. With the new curriculum came a shift in our programming, which saw us focus more on the development of youth as strong individuals. We invested in their personal strengths and passions and used philanthropy as a tool to aid in the process.
