Allow Good equips youth with the knowledge, skills, and capacity to take meaningful action in their communities. We inspire youth to become actively engaged in addressing social challenges throughout their lives. This addresses a pressing need facing our society - engaging youth in their communities to create a society of socially engaged citizens.
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.
Based in downtown Chicago, teens participate in hands-on learning experiences centered around philanthropy, social innovation, entrepreneurship, and corporate social responsibility. During this week-long experience, participants are inspired by leaders from local foundations, social purpose organizations, and corporations.
Allow Good partners with organizations and schools who are committed to advancing philanthropic education. Our expertise and curriculum offer organizations such as foundations, nonprofits, and schools the opportunity to tailor our suite of programs to their unique needs. Programs range from weekend experiences to week-long summits.
