Our semester-long program takes high school youth through lessons in civic engagement, community histories, and the philanthropic grantmaking process. Students explore and research local community challenges, narrowing to a single topic of their choosing. The course culminates with each class directing a $1,000 grant to a community organization that they have evaluated.
