Becoming a strategic philanthropist is a learned skill and one in which Areyvut dedicates a considerable amount of time and effort. Teaching kids at a young age not only the importance of philanthropy but also how to best allocate funds is a skill that can last a lifetime.
In June of 2010, Areyvut held a Seminar on Jewish Teen Philanthropy. Experts in the field came from near and far to share their knowledge and experiences, and to learn from one another. Areyvut was fortunate to have a number of distinguished presenters who addressed the group on a variety of topics specifically pertaining to creating the initial program year, including everything from helping parents nurture their teens’ interest in tzedakah, to various youth philanthropy program models.
