Episode 47 Raising A #Giving Kid: Intention and Impact

Dr. Cynthia Colon with Molly Yuska, Founder, Project Giving Kids

Oh my word! This episode is definitely for parents who want validation that YOU ARE on the right track. Just when it feels like you are not sure if what you are doing to teach your child how to simply be a good, kind, and an empathetic child, boom, here is your answer.  Molly shares a tale from her own parenting book on just how much magic can happen when you simply plant the seeds for your child. 


When it comes to college admissions, many believe that community service is the path to getting admitted. It is not the service that matters, it is how your teen decides how to leave an impact. For some it is through giving of their TIME, for others, the best way to leave an impact is by giving of their TALENT, and yet for others, giving TREASURE is the best way for them to contribute. The point is this: find an organization or a cause that gets your teen fired up, and then, like Molly says, “Let nature take its course.” 


Today, learn how to raise a #givingkid with intention and impact!

Guest Bio:

Molly Yuska

Founder of Project Giving Kids, Molly Yuska, has always known the importance of kids and teens engaging in service. As a busy mom of four, she knew it wasn’t always very easy to find those opportunities for her kids, and even more impossible for her kids to find those opportunities on their own.

With a master’s degree in nonprofit management and a growing family, Molly co-founded a philanthropy group at her church outside Boston to make it easier for families with young children to engage in more service activities, but knew she wanted to make this project available to a much wider audience. She also knew that connecting busy families via technology was the best way to reach most of them. Project Giving Kids was launched in 2013, with a goal to fill that need.
