SF Bay Area Teens Raise $177k.

from The Nonprofit Quarterly:

Teens in Philanthropy

Young people are getting more involved in higher-end philanthropic decision-making …

The story goes on to talk about one of a number of such efforts NPQ has heard about lately, a six month program that engages teens and a reflection process as preparation for their own giving in the future.

This program, run by the Jewish Community Foundation is located in the Bay Area. Last year the group of 25 teens raised $177,000, which they then distributed to 25 nonprofit groups.
