Program Description: 

Rose Youth Foundation is a diverse group of 23 Jewish students grades 10 through 12 who want to use their Jewish values and the tools of strategic philanthropy to make a real difference in our community. Rose Youth Foundation is a youth-led program. The members of Rose Youth Foundation identify community issues, set funding priorities and meet with nonprofit organizations in order to determine how they can use grantmaking as a tool to create positive change. In 2001, Rose Community Foundation created Rose Youth Foundation in order to: 

  • empower Jewish youth with the tools and resources to solve problems in their communities through the practice of strategic philanthropy.
  • provide youth the opportunity to explore Jewish teachings and traditions in the context of contemporary issues and community service.
  • broaden and deepen participants’ connections to Judaism and to one another and create connections across the denominational spectrum of Judaism.
