Facilitating collaboration and networking amongst youth groups can be challenging due to busy schedules.

Youth often want to connect with their local nonprofits outside of fundraising or grantmaking.  Nonprofits may struggle to understand the most efficient way to connect with each other and the youth in their community.  

Join us for this webinar with Olivia Henry, from the Council of Michigan Foundations, and Eric Hessel, from the Hendricks County Community Foundation.  They will share ways their organizations are successfully convening nonprofits and promoting cross-sector collaboration.


  • Facilitation methods adult leaders can use to collaborate with one another and the youth they serve.
  • Ways youth can interact with local nonprofits and how youth-serving nonprofits can interact with one another.
  • How to value youth voice throughout the process.
