Throughout Michigan, Youth Action Committees have become very popular. These are groups of high school students who are being given the opportunity to be philanthropists and give to others. The students learn about different aspects and the process of effective philanthropy. They then disperse their funds to people throughout Michigan who are in need of support.
This reminds me of Areyvut’s Jewish Teen Philanthropy Program. This program teaches students about philanthropy and shows them the change that they can make in the world. This is such an important lesson for young people to learn and I hope that these types of groups become more popular throughout the country.
