We believe purpose is critically important: Research has shown that a strong sense of purpose, a commitment to something that is both personally rewarding and beneficial to others, is linked to improved health, well-being, and success. A stronger sense of purpose can make a significant difference in a young person's life path, setting them on a course for a more successful, meaningful life.
