generationOn, as the youth division of Points of Light, inspires, equips and mobilizes millions of people to take action that is changing the world. They envision a world in which everyone has discovered their power to make a difference, creating healthy communities in vibrant, participatory societies.
Programs like Campaigns, Days of Service, Kids Care Clubs and Teen Service Clubs support youth in communities across the country and around the world in completing hands-on service projects to address local needs.
generationOn’s goLEAD and Ready, Set, Go! programs focus on training and equipping organizations and schools to more effectively support youth and families in service, service-learning and youth leadership.
generationOn’s leadership and recognition program, the Youth Advisory Council, recognizes teens for outstanding service work and ensures inclusion of youth voice in generationOn’s programming.
Through toolkits, project guides, fact sheets, lesson plans and an online service tracker, generationOn supports youth and caring adults in preparing for, delivering and reporting on service activities.
Together, this wide array of programs and resources helps kids and teens become:
- CARING, by learning about important issues that affect themselves or their community
- COMPASSIONATE, by taking action to think of others
- CAPABLE, by developing the social emotional and life skills needed to succeed both in and out of the classroom.
