To support online leadership development, local community service, and international group travel program for the next generation of community and global leaders.
The organization’s primary program, B the Light, is a team based program that includes online leadership development, local community service, and an international group service. The current project will engage a team of 15 undergraduate and graduate students from Nyack College (NY) whose efforts will result in the construction of one primary school in Haiti. This school will serve over 400 children and adults from a rural community and will serve as a catalyst for sustainable and positive community development with the community. BGood will partner with buildOn to coordinate the building of the school in Haiti.
