Check out this awesome CAAP mention in the Huffington Post!
“Youth often roll up their own sleeves to assess needs in their communities before defining their grantmaking focus. For example, the Teen Grantmaking Initiative at the Center for Arab-American Philanthropy surveys students at the schools that they themselves attend to understand what needs they perceive in the community. The results of one recent assessment showed that “longer recess/study halls” wasn’t an identified need, but drug abuse and domestic violence were. There’s a lot to be learned just by asking peers, and it doesn’t cost any money to do so.”
