When the quarantine was first upon us, our Education team worked tirelessly to make sure that we could still host our PAVE program even if it meant converting it to a virtual format. We modified the structure of our course so that each of our students still got the full PAVE experience even if it was through a computer screen.
All of the participants learned about philanthropy and how they can actively help others whether by themselves or with a nonprofit. The students were able to practice their communication and leadership skills while learning how to network and participate in charitable activities.
In our third session, we invited Vanessa Baum of The Family Place to speak to the kids about her organization and how kids can get involved. Our students were asking tons of questions and really showing off their nonprofit research skills.
Lastly, every student developed a project where they would help combine their personal passions with existing community needs. Our students created a variety of projects including:
We are so proud of our PAVE graduates and can't wait to see them grow as leaders and philanthropists!
