Empowering youth to proudly stand for what they believe in.
We aim to support the next generation in understanding the power and influence of their voice and actions to create change. When young people practice compassion, determination, collaboration, and are empowered to use their voice and take action, transformational change occurs in their communities and in themselves.

This increases the development of Compassionate Traits, which grow a sense of self, a sense of purpose and creates positive impact for people, other animals, and the environment.
The steps include:
Our model encourages young people to do a project for people, a project for animals, and a project for the environment. The 4-Step Formula increases understanding of the interconnectivity of all three.
