The Jewish Women’s Foundation of the Greater Palm Beaches has launched a new teen philanthropic leadership program, No Small Change, as part of its commitment to develop leaders at every age and stage. No Small Change is a philanthropic leadership program and giving circle for high school students in Palm Beach County who wish to enhance their leadership skills and learn about local social justice issues, strategic grant making, and the power of collective giving. Teens will learn and apply fundraising skills and collaboratively determine how to allocate $10,000 to nonprofits that focus on gender equity and social justice.  Up to 20 teens will be accepted into the inaugural class.

Teens will meet once a month on Sundays at the JCC in Palm Beach Gardens from September through April. Parents will be invited to participate in selected sessions.
