Challenge

Following the economic downturn, our society continues to face a number of challenges, and desperately needs strong youth advocates to spark change at the grassroots level.

Solution

Our aim is to expand the TGI program nationally, and beginning with New York City. TGI will not only be the only New York-based Arab American youth philanthropy group, but also the first youth philanthropy group in the entire state. CAAP looks forward to doubling the impact of our youth grantmaking program through this expansion.

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.
