Youth 201: Train the Trainer: Learn a Great Tool, 21/64's roleplay, and Telling your Philanthropy Story
The work of giving can be serious business, but it doesn’t always have to be. 21/64, in partnership with Youth Philanthropy Connect, created roleplay as a tool to help you leverage an often overlooked way to explore your role in philanthropy: play. You will gain awareness of how you act in different roles—both personally and as a funder--and even understand how to better tell your story of your path in philanthropy. Each youth philanthropy program will bring home enough roleplay kits so you can take what you learned and facilitate this tool for your peers!
