For our latest SFY blog post, Camp Poyntelle Head of Girls Julie Gold talks about the Jewish Teen Funders Network (JTFN) project she led with her 7th graders this past summer. The children learned about philanthropy and values and took trips to non-profit organizations, with an allotment of $1000 to donate to the organization of their choice. Thanks for all of your hard work, and for a great write-up, Julie.
