Barnesville area youth get a lesson in philanthropy in the sixth grade. Each class of sixth graders participates in a philanthropy curriculum in class and are given funds from Barnesville Area Community Fund to make grants. After reviewing applications and conducting interviews the youth make a decision on a non-profit to which they will gift the money donated to them by BACF.
