We are delighted to announce an upcoming webinar in partnership with The Sillerman Center for the Advancement of Philanthropy at Brandeis University. From their newest study, The State of Youth Philanthropy 2020 – 2021 the Sillerman Center explores the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on youth philanthropy programs across the United States. Several programs within the Honeycomb network played a big part in helping this research come together.


Join the Sillerman Center and Honeycomb as we talk through findings from this study and strategies that programs can implement to help overcome challenges that Jewish youth programs are facing during this time. Attendees will also hear from Rachel Halevi, one of Honeycomb’s amazing network program leaders, about solutions that she has implemented in her program at the Jewish Teen Foundation.
