January 24, 2013: Thirty-one Rotarians and guests were present
as Kara Sheeholtz, Senior Program Officer of the Central Susquehanna Community
Foundation, spoke about the Youth in Philanthropy program. Mike Flock was the
host, and he provided the background of the Foundation for Student Giving that
functioned from 1998 to 2005. He, as a board member
of the CSCF, is now involved in the YIP program which seeks to teach high
school students about the meaning of philanthropy by giving a student group
$5000 to give to non-profit community groups. YIP provides students the opportunity
to learn about needs assessment, creating applications, presenting to
elementary students, reading and eventually deciding on a group to receive a
grant. Five high schools are engaged currently in the process with as many as 8
in one year when there are sufficient funds.
