Rose Community Foundation is seeking Jewish teens in grades 10 through 12 to help grant $60,000 to organizations serving the Denver metro Jewish community, including Boulder.
Selected teens will be part of Rose Youth Foundation, an initiative providing Jewish youth with the opportunity to be grantmakers and to learn about philanthropy and the Jewish community. Applications will be accepted through October 6, 2011.
Now in its 11th year, Rose Youth Foundation will meet twice per month on Sundays from November 2011 through April 2012. The teens will learn about grantmaking, assess community needs, review grant proposals and make site visits to prospective grantees. As a youth-led group, members also learn leadership skills, group decision-making and communication skills. Rose Community Foundation staff will provide oversight and guidance.
Rose Community Foundation is committed to recruiting a diverse group of Jewish and interfaith Jewish youth – affiliated and unaffiliated, secular and religious, and those from different geographic areas and life circumstances. Jewish teens in grades 10 through 12 who are interested in being part of Rose Youth Foundation are encouraged to visit rcfdenver.org/RYF for an online application and more information, or contact Sarah Indyk at 303.398.7416.
