Discovering Your Passion for Change
This special session is for youth new to philanthropy! Learn how your passions can help change the world by using the great skills you already have!  Philanthropy allows a person or organization to focus on one issue--or a list of finite issues--and really understand the ins and outs of solving that problem. It is a big responsibility to help make sure change happens and can be a lot of fun---come join the fun!
