Celebrating the Top Resources for Youth Philanthropy
Join us as we celebrate the top resources from across the youth philanthropy field. We will hear from those who developed resources and youth from programs who have used or implemented these tools. This webinar will give you the resources and the knowledge on how to fully utilize them in your own programs to take youth philanthropy to the next level!
