Teen Grantmaking Initiative expands to Florida
The Teen Grantmaking Initiative, a joint project of the Center for Arab American Philanthropy (CAAP) and the National Network for Arab American Communities (NNAAC), is a group of dynamic youth dedicated to improving their community through philanthropic work that is coming soon to Florida.
CAAP and NNAAC, both projects of ACCESS, formed TGI in September 2011 in Dearborn and expanded to Brooklyn, New York, through the Arab American Association of New York.
Orlando-based Arab American Community Center, a member of NNAAC, will unveil the program at noon on Nov. 8. The program is open to all 15- to 19-year-olds, and the first session will serve as an orientation to the initiative.
TGI is meant to encourage leadership, diversify resumes and provide new skills while simultaneously helping the community. TGI makes a difference in every city and state where it is implemented.
