Youth Track

You’ve Got the POWER!

Now get the tools to change your community

The YOUTH TRACK at Southeast Rural Philanthropy Days will bring together Junior and Senior High youth from eight counties to talk about community improvement projects and fundraising. Existing youth groups, clubs and coalitions are encouraged to attend together with an adult sponsor. Lunch, snacks and all materials will be provided!

Please join us on Thursday, September 25 at the Famous Performing Arts Center for this FREE one-day workshop!

At YOUTH TRACK, you will:

  • Meet a nonprofit mover and shaker
  • Find your community’s “hot button” issue
  • Visualize change, what does it look like?
  • Brainstorm what you can do to help solve the problem
  • Present your ideas to funders!
