Young Philanthropy Course

Young Philanthropy is a free course delivered by the Foundation Team to young people aged 18-24 years of age.  We can deliver this course to Colleges and Universities, Charitable Organisations and Agencies.  We deliver the course at your venue for free which results in a certificate that can contribute to build a CV, UCAS points and provide an alternative learning experience as well as an insight into philanthropy and the local charitable sector.

To book a session you will need a minimum of 10 young people and have a venue space with internet access. Contact Rachel McGrath for further details on 01604 230033 or email
