Do Good: Youth Philanthropy Program at Center for Civic Engagement, Northwestern University

I am very excited to share this information with you from

At the core of Allowance for Good is the Emerging Leaders in Philanthropy program. Youth who participate in this student seminar series are introduced to themes in global development, philanthropy, and civic action. The program culminates with a Certificate in Global Philanthropic Leadership and equips students with the skills to lead change-based projects in their communities.

We work side-by-side with and empower youth leaders to develop and execute a self-contained or small group project that synthesizes personal interests with concepts of philanthropy and global development. Youth leaders mobilize projects in their communities to raise awareness for, give their time to, and invite contributions for their AfG Global Affiliate of choice. Youth efforts contribute to one or more of five key project areas: Access to Water, Health & Hygiene, Classroom Materials, Bricks & Mortar, and Funds for Fun. Join us this spring to expand your knowledge about global philanthropic leadership. Youth ages 13-18 welcome!
