Imagine the benefits to our communities and work when young people are deeply supported in using their time and creativity to lead and inspire change that advances the common good. Meaningful youth participation allows for more perspectives, different ideas, and better outcomes for everyone involved. The tools in this guide help us to be champions of youth and youth philanthropy. Why do we involve youth? Because we know they’ll make us better.
This collection of youth philanthropy resources was developed in collaboration with the Council of Michigan Foundations (CMF) Youth Philanthropy Task Force powered by Michigan youth, CMF members, and nonprofit leaders. For more information, see this brief summary of the task force work.
