Interact Activity
We are quite fortunate that Karen Rolf arranged for five alumni of Omaha’s Chartered Advisor in Philanthropy (“CAP”) Study Group to talk with teen leaders from Omaha and surrounding areas about the subject of teen philanthropy.  During the week of March 28, 2022, in cooperation with Rotary District 5650 and the Suburban Rotary Club of Omaha, CAP alumni Matt Darling, Howard Epstein, Tom Kerfoot, Lisa Strutzel and Louri Sullivan facilitated interactive conversations about philanthropy with the teens.  On Wednesday afternoon, March 30th,  they met with students at Millard North High School’s Suburban Rotary-sponsored Interact Club and on Friday evening, March 31st, with students attending the Rotary Youth Leadership Academy at Camp Kitaki.   A total of approximately 70 teens participated. 
The teens and the CAP alumni spoke about philanthropy, the teen and adult interpretations of the meaning of philanthropy, how the teens see philanthropy in their daily lives, and the values which drive the teens’ philanthropy and charity.  They reflected upon the impact their actions and words  have on their communities, and how they are crafting their philanthropic identities and legacies by giving and utilizing their time, talent, treasure and ties to support causes they believe in.    Conversations among the teens and the CAP grads focused on the interests, concerns and causes that drive the teens’ generosity and which drive the generosity of their parents and grandparents. 
All participants viewed a video from  Then, identifying concepts from the “I Like Giving” video, the teens broke into discussion groups to discuss things they can do to live a generous life through their thoughts, words, money, time, attention, belongings and their influence.
I think we made an impact on the teens.   It is good to see our Suburban Rotary Club collaborate with groups like the CAP Advisory Board.  In reaching out to the next generation about philanthropy, we are helping to groom our future leaders.
