Young Philanthropy Fellows is an Atlanta Jewish Foundation program created in partnership with Honeycomb and Jumpspark. The Atlanta Jewish Foundation facilitates giving to both Jewish organizations and secular causes, right here in Georgia or anywhere in the world. We provide solutions to enable our clients’ philanthropic visions, for their current philanthropy as well as their desired legacy. Some of the services provided by the Atlanta Jewish Foundation include donor-advised funds, endowments, gifts of privately held assets and real estate, legacy gifts, family philanthropy, and so much more.
Young Philanthropy Fellows is open to teens ages 13- 15. Program participation will ensure teens are developing into the community’s future philanthropic leaders. This program is designed as a small cohort learning experience to ensure all participants have a voice in the learning environment and decision-making process of giving.
Sessions throughout the program will provide teens with practical skills to put strategic grantmaking practices into action. Teens will learn about systemic issues of justice as well as immediate charitable needs in the community through hands-on experiences with non-profit organizations and drive the group’s ultimate giving decisions based these experiences.
The program will begin on Sunday, November 13th, and Roundtable Discussions will take place on Sunday, February 12th from 1:30-3:30pm.
