Inclined to Care: Lifting the Alleghenies to New Heights

JOHNSTOWN — The Community Foundation for the Alleghenies welcomed ten Youth Philanthropy Interns this summer for an eight-week program that was made possible through a grant from The Heinz Endowments, based on its long-running similar program in Pittsburgh.

Throughout their internship, students assessed community needs and developed two opportunities for local nonprofits to apply for grants up to $25,000 to address these needs. In addition to their grantmaking, interns created radio documentaries with training from SLB Radio Productions in Pittsburgh.

SLB will air the features across its 10-station network and also has archived photographs and audio available online.
