High School Teens Get First Taste of the H2YP Program

Seeing, learning, assessing needs for philanthropic support

The Robinson H2YP Youth Philanthropy Program is an intensive six-week program in which local teens learn about the services and priorities of Charles E. Smith Life Communities and how decisions are made to utilize limited philanthropic resources most effectively.

At the third H²YP meeting on March 7, participants got a behind-the-scenes tour of the Hebrew Home’s industrial-size laundry and kitchen. In the laundry room, staff member Robert Harkins explained that the washing machines hold a staggering 350 pounds of laundry per load. Over in the kitchen, food service supervisor Yemi Mengstu showed the group the Pareve, Dairy and Meat preparation areas hundreds of kosher meals and snacks are prepared every day. In addition to serving residents of the Hebrew Home and broader Charles E. Smith Life Communities, our kitchen also prepares more than 20,000 kosher meals aper year for the Jewish Social Service Agency’s Meals-on-Wheels program.
