AJL was so fortunate to partner with Aariyah Johnson via the inaugural GIV Fellowship in 2021! The GIV Fellowship places young adults (18-24) across Colorado in a remote fellowship with grant-making foundations. The program is designed for individuals from underrepresented communities in the philanthropic sector to 1) gain experience in the field, and 2) provide community & youth insight into foundation operations.
Aariyah brought so much to AJL's work - youth voice and perspective, a spirit of learning and a commitment to the communities we serve. For her capstone project, Aariyah asks the hard questions in her letter to philanthropy and explores impact in her final impact video.
Thank you, Aariyah!
