Our weeklong summits give teens hands-on learning experiences centered around philanthropy, social innovation, entrepreneurship, and corporate social responsibility. During workshops, participants are inspired by leaders from local foundations, social purpose organizations, and corporations. 

Workshops have included:

Allow Good doesn’t simply seek to raise money; they seek to raise the realization in teenagers that they can make a difference in the world and give them the tools to ... bring about real change.
— Seth Dobbs, Allow Good parent
