Internship: Teen Trust Student Director
The Community Foundation of Northeast Iowa’s Teen Trust program is a model for youth philanthropy. Each year, a diverse group of students from area high schools allocates $15,000 to nonprofit agencies in Black Hawk County. Using a grant application system, site visits, and training seminars, the Trustees work as a team to decide which organizations to assist through financial aid or volunteerism. Teen Trust is led by a student director, a local college student who organizes and guides the students' activities.
