CEO Statement

What makes DoMore4:Good unique is our ability to work both within the schools and with local community organizations to not only connect students to weekly acts of service, but to ensure they get to these opportunities which often means we bring the opportunities to the schools.  Students' volunteer hours are recorded and tracked and they are recognized and rewarded for their service.  There is an element of friendly competition to further make the experiences fun.  We believe that although students may originally engage for the rewards, they swiftly recognize the intrinsic value of volunteering and doing something to improve their communities.

Board Chair Statement

I founded DoMore4:Good because I believe the way to change the world is through acts of kindness and service, starting with the youth.  The inspiration came from spending an enlightening and educational year deep in the jungles of Panama.  The journey left me with a new focus toward positivity and acts of kindness as a source of overall well-being. One of our main challenges - as it is for most organizations - is raising the funds to support our programs.  We need donations of incentives for the students, supplies for the projects and transportation to the volunteer activities. Although a young organization, we already see the value - and the changes in the students - of giving back to their communities and helping to transform them through kindness and service.

DoMore4:Good School Programs

Our School Programs unite high schools and local nonprofits in a friendly rewards-based competition designed to inspire students to perform acts of kindness and volunteerism in a way that is fun and educational.
Program Structure: High School students work in teams to complete the most hours of volunteering across a verified calendar of opportunities from nonprofit organizations that work locally on these issues, with DoMore4:Good providing the means and access to these opportunities both on- and off-campus. All students who participate will accrue points and win rewards for their activities. The team that completes the most hours of volunteering will win a special prize, to be awarded at the conclusion of the project. The student who volunteers the most hours will also receive special recognition and a reward. Each participating team will also create a 2-minute Public Service Announcement (PSA) on the impact of volunteering based on their program experience, supervised by a faculty/staff member and with guidance and resources provided by DoMore4:Good. The team that creates the winning PSA will also receive a reward, to be identified.
