THE SPARK OF INITIATIVE AND FLAME OF PROGRESS
The Andrew Goodman Foundation combines the community organizing tools and lessons of the past with the technological innovations of the present to seed and nurture a new hero citizenry: ordinary individuals engaged and committed to creative and effective action for social impact. As an ally to heroes, we advance Civic Engagement and Intergenerational Coalitions to build a more peaceful, just and sustainable world. Join our journey to inspire more young people to pursue social change work, activate the important lessons of the past, and sustain today’s effective social action.
The Andrew Goodman Foundation’s programs and activities spark individuals to step forward and address injustice, connect to a community of like-minded peers and impact through collaboration. Our goal is to empower all individuals to take action to address systemic social issues such as poverty, educational access, economic opportunity, equality and social justice. Spark leadership, ignite heroism.
