FIST at Pleasant Lake Elementary

By JoAnna Ness, Mar 18 2019 01:41PM

The SCCF youth philanthropy group known as FIST (Forever Improving Steuben County Together) held their March meeting at Pleasant Lake Elementary. They read personal narratives with a 2nd grade class, and helped with math problems in a 3rd grade class taught by a former FIST member (Miss Sarah Clary). They also held a presentation about FIST with the 5th grade class and helped the students through the process of deciding where to grant $250 to a nonprofit. Thank you to Pleasant Lake Elementary for helping FIST teach Steuben County youth about philanthropy!

FIST has been working to inspire other students to give back. If your nonprofit or classroom has a project that empowers youth to volunteer and become engaged in their community, consider applying for a FIST grant.
