Why we exist:

To build a generation of learners viewing themselves as community contributors and part of nature, and using service to express that.

The big idea:

Inspiring and amplifying actions that connect people at 3 levels: to their bodies, communities, and the natural world.

Our focus:

Providing health and service project resources for K-college students, including

  • Lists of project topics and best practices
  • Google Drive-based project management guides
  • Empowering presentations
  • Songs, raps, and T-shirts that reinforce key messages
