Betsy Peterson is a former teacher with a heart for experiential learning and community involvement. Betsy first learned about the impact of philanthropy education when Learning to Give piloted its lessons in Michigan schools, demonstrating that the skills, joy, and power of philanthropy could raise youth engagement.
