Instills Life Values and Skills in Students to Inspire Next Generation of “Philanthropists in Training”
The Morris County School of Technology and nonprofit Main Street Philanthropy recently launched a unique partnership to create a dynamic, real world experience for students in the field of charitable giving and fundraising.
“Main Street Philanthropy gives our students an authentic learning opportunity to practice and hone 21st century skills–communication, collaboration, and critical thinking, while exploring real-world situations,” said Hietanen.
Levey explained the goal of the program is to help youths experience the joy of purposeful giving.
“We help address much of what is broken in the world today by providing an antidote for selfish me-first thinking,’’ said Levy.
MCTS students who participated in the program received valuable life skills in financial literacy, written and oral communication, community awareness, group collaboration and leadership, and gratitude.
