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 mentors who believe every individual, everywhere, is valuable and has the potential to lead positive change in their local community and beyond.
Our mission is to provide access to the highest-quality leadership development experiences in order to empower the next generation of local and global leaders to positively impact the world.
B the Light is a leadership development program model for middle, high school, university, and young professional-aged participant groups. Our program uniquely combines online leadership mentoring and education, engagement in local community service, and culminates with an 8-14 day group leadership mission. B the Light programs take place over 6 to 12 months.
Participants meet with a leadership mentor for 30 minutes each week: anywhere, anytime.

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.
