Image result for multiplying good logoAt Multiplying Good (MG) we believe individuals are transformed through service to others. Applying service as a tool for personal growth, we help people discover their ability to bring about positive change, deliver the skills they need to do it well, and, by validating their impact, inspire them to do more. We’ve proven this continuum of activation, training, and recognition generates ripples of good. We work with young people to unleash confidence in their ability to make a difference and deliver the skills they need to do it well. We work with organizations to recognize their employees, resulting in happier and more productive workplaces and stronger communities. We work with the media to create more connected audiences and drive non-traditional revenue by recognizing grassroots unsung heroes in their communities. All together, we use the power of service to activate empathetic leaders and changemakers and inspire greater impact.
