The facilitator should call representatives from each sector and invite them to be a part of the philanthropic action panel. The facilitator will need to communicate with each panelist and provide information about the youth organization and the philanthropic training the participants are receiving.
Panelists should discuss and help the participants learn about the support to various nonprofits contributed through corporations, grants, giving campaigns such as the United Way, individual donors, and volunteers.
The facilitator explains that individuals representing the private, corporate, nonprofit, and the public sectors of the community will be meeting with the youth. They practice their philanthropic actions both individually and professionally.
The Facilitator may say to the participants: “Today, we are going to meet some people who take action in the community; hear and learn what they do; why they do it; and why it is important to give back to the community. You will have an opportunity to ask each panelist questions.
