Conference Time! | #2

The 2017 Youth Grantmakers Summer Leadership Conference Committee lifting up my supervisor (R) and I (L)

This photo captures everything about my internship this summer. Since January I have been planning a weekend long conference for 300+ youth grantmakers from across the Midwest. I’m rarely at a loss for words but I was speechless multiple times throughout that weekend in late June as I watched what I had spent so many late nights in my office in Detroit working to create come to life. Seeing the committee of high school and college aged youth philanthropists facilitate and help lead the conference was incredibly inspiring and empowering. They were such an incredible example for other youth philanthropists to look up to and aspire to be. I’ve learned so much from planning and MCing this conference, the youth committee literally lifts me up!
