2017 - Youth Philanthropy Program

Teens learn about the practical application of charitable gifts

2015 H2YP. New PhotoThe seventh season of the Hebrew Home's Robinson H²YP Youth Philanthropy Program will offer high school students an amazing opportunity to learn how an organization weighs and prioritizes its needs in order to make optimal use of charitable gifts. They become part of a process we apply in allocating funds to projects requested by various departments on campus. Through their contributions and thoughtful decisions, H²YP teens learn how tzedakah directly impacts the lives of residents. Note: Student Service Learning (SSL) hours are given for participation.

We are grateful to Bruce and Paula Robinson for establishing the Harold and Shirley Robinson Youth Philanthropy Endowment Fund to provide annual support for H²YP. Their dual commitment to assisting older adults and educating teens about the role of tzedakah has been essential to the success of the program.

If you would like to recommend students in grades 9 to 12 who might be interested in enrolling, please email Lauren Fielding or call her at 301.816.7746 to obtain more information.
