Video Clip and Discussion Guide: In this set of videos, youth display the impact they have made through putting together fun informative videos about their different philanthropic acts. Watch these videos to generate ideas for your youth philanthropy group to put together a video project that demonstrates their impact!
Youth Activity: Young people watch a video of people telling what they think "philanthropy" means. Then they conduct their own interviews to gather information about the understanding of the concept of philanthropy.
This activity will provide an opportunity for the youth and a professionals/community leaders to get acquainted. This will help start the team-building process among board members and youth philanthropists and demonstrate part of the process of “building community.”
These videos, activities, ideas, toolkits, and discussion starters support a year of youth group engagement. The content may be used in any order.
