Everyone is valuable
Who is BGood Worldwide? By definition, we are 501(c)(3) nonprofit based outside of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. But really we are so much more than just a nonprofit label.
BGood Worldwide is an inclusive, nonprofit organization made up of individuals committed to making a positive impact in the world. We are dreamers, creators, and mentors who believe that every individual, everywhere, is valuable and has the potential to lead positive change in their community.
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 change
The seeds of BGood Worldwide were planted during Ben’s eleven years working in the non-profit youth sports development and leadership field. The focus was on running the Goodstein Junior Leaders, a youth leadership team first established in 1998 at Legacy Youth Tennis and Education in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The Goodstein Junior Leaders engaged in year-round leadership development activities that included researching and implementing community service projects, learning various fund development skills to attract resources for those projects, and gaining first-hand exposure to new people, places and cultures through tennis and service. Over that time Ben’s work with young people and coaches took them to national and international destinations like Florida, Texas, California, Georgia, New York, Washington DC, Haiti, Israel, Benin, South Africa, and Brazil. Through these experiences working with young people and their families, developing a unique program model, and working with various national and international partners, the roots of BGood Worldwide were established.
