We Are BGood Worldwide
By definition, we are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit. But really we are so much more than just a nonprofit label. We are dreamers, creators, and coaches who believe every individual, everywhere, is valuable and has the potential to make a positive impact in their local community and beyond.
Our mission is to provide access to and deliver the highest-quality leadership programs in order to empower the next generation of local and global leaders to positively impact the world.
B the Light is a leadership program model for students and young adult groups, ages 12-35. The model is designed around leadership, service and travel activities and is able to be customized for different types of classes, student groups/clubs, athletic teams, young friends groups or business teams. The program uniquely combines group leadership workshops and an online learning portal, engagement in local community service, and culminates with an 8-14 day group leadership mission. All program timelines are customized and generally take place over 6 to 12 months.
Our primary program objective is to significantly increase students and young adults capacity to effectively lead others, locally and beyond.
Our group leadership workshops are also supported by an online learning portal and scheduled 1-on-1 video coaching sessions.
Leadership skills learned in workshops and online are applied in your local community through your groups choice of service.
All programs culminate with a customized group leadership mission in the US or abroad that focuses on your group's theme of service.

By the Numbers
Learning about leadership, real-world problems, building confidence and the importance of education has undoubtedly brightened my entire life. I’ve learned the value of giving back to my community and it has made me so grateful for all that I have in my life. I can certainly say that without all of the important time that I have spent in the program, I would not be where I am today.
Being a part of the program allowed me to push my limits. I was placed in an environment where I was able to do what I thought I was capable of and more. At the time I had these big ideas that I would share but never had the resources to act on it. Once joining the program it was no longer what I would do but how I could do it.
This program opened my eyes to a new world. I learned how privileged I am in some aspects of life, yet also how privileged the people of Haiti are in other facets of life compared to me. I now know that in community service, it is an exchange of labor, words, culture, feelings, and love.
