We recently gathered Ahmad, Mayla and Marwa, members of our Teen Grantmaking Initiative (TGI) to reflect on their program experience. “It was fantastic … I learned so many things, I definitely felt like I did make a big change in the community,” Ahmad said about his first year in CAAP’s Teen Grantmaking Initiative (TGI).

This groundbreaking program has distributed around $10,000 to important youth-focused causes in the Detroit metropolitan community, and the youth are looking forward to recruiting new members, visiting grantees, fundraising, and making grant decisions.
