Welcome to PACT: The Carole and Michael Friedman Manhattan Philanthropic Advisory Council for Teens

If you’re ready to give back, we’re here to help you make an impact through the Center for Youth Philanthropy and Leadership’s PACT. You’ll learn how to raise and allocate funds for causes that matter, develop your leadership skills, and discover Jewish values with other teens.

We can’t wait to work with you.
