A new program partnering middle school students from the Palm Beach Day Academy with after-school students at the YMCA teaches important lessons to all of those involved, organizers say.

Younger students enrolled the West Palm Beach after-school program get help with homework and reading comprehension, while older students enrolled in the island school learn about the importance of giving back, said Cynthia Sulzberger, who helped create the program and has a daughter at the Day Academy.


After an overwhelming response from Palm Beach County students eager to participate in this year’s event, Palm Beach Philanthropy Tank has announced that its submission review process is now complete, and nine innovative and socially impactful solutions have been selected to be presented by young philanthropists at the second Palm Beach Philanthropy Tank. This “Shark Tank”-style competition for students enrolled in grades 7-12 in Palm Beach County empowers and equips students to develop and execute high-impact and sustainable community betterment projects. The finalists will “pitch” their ideas during a live event to a panel of four local philanthropists, and they are eligible to receive up to $15,000 and 12 months of one-to-one mentoring.
