Summary

TGI is the only Arab American youth philanthropy program in the country. This unique model teaches high school students about community issues, grantmaking, nonprofit management, communication and compromise, and community leadership. This year, the youth decided to focus their grantmaking priorities on academic success and access to healthcare, and have set a goal of granting $5000 to youth-serving organizations in the Detroit area.

Challenge

The Detroit area continues to face a number challenges, and desperately needs strong youth advocates to spark change at the grassroots level. After a careful review of their needs assessment and a discussion about issues impacting youth in the Detroit area, TGI members decided to focus their grantmaking this year on education and health.

Solution

TGI will grant half of the proceeds from this challenge to youth-focused education and health nonprofits in the Detroit area, and the rest of the funds will supply grant review materials and training.

Long-Term Impact

By supporting the TGI program, you will give minority youth a voice for change in their community, while also benefiting a multitude of individuals served by education and health nonprofits.
