Student Service and Philanthropy Project. A Resource Guide for Establishing a Student-Run Foundation.
Surdna Foundation, Inc., New York, NY.; New York City Board of Education, Brooklyn, NY. Div. of High Schools.
The Student Service and Philanthropy Project provides students with opportunities to effect positive change in their communities through leadership. By creating minifoundations, young people are empowered to propose, review, implement, and fund service projects that make a difference. A unique aspect of the program is its assumption that youth are capable of implementing valuable ideas. In semester 1, students engage in activities that promote teamwork, study the history of foundations, develop ideas, and practice leadership and public speaking. In semester 2, they undertake service projects, reflect on them, learn problem solving, and practice journal writing. This guide contains materials to help the students develop their foundations. Lesson-plan formats are provided that combine easy use with maximum flexibility. A list of eight resources is given for additional help. (Contains 9 references.) (SLD)
