THERE IS A SUPERHERO IN ALL OF US!
The Greater Purpose Project is a 501 (c) (3) charitable organization: Our mission is to inspire people of all ages, ethnicities and backgrounds to discover their Greater Purpose of serving their local and global communities. We are achieving this mission through our Youth Heroes Program and as a positive news outlet! Join our cause: The world needs your SUPERPOWERS!
THE PROBLEM #GPP SOLVES.
Arizona currently has the 2nd worst graduation rate in the US and ranks #14 for having the worst high school volunteerism in the nation. In addition to suffering academically, children and teens are experiencing increased levels of anxiety and depression. In December 2021, US Surgeon General Vivek Murthy, MD, issued an advisory on mental health among youths, calling it an “urgent public health crisis.”
AT #GPP... WE EMPOWER YOUTH
TO BE PART OF THE SOLUTION
The Greater Purpose Project offers a solution to these issues by providing youth with meaningful service learning opportunities that increase their social/emotional wellbeing while reducing anxiety and depression. #GPP equips students with the tools, training and mentoring they need to identify and help solve local issues. #GPP's programs provide youth with the unique opportunity to use their talents and skills to achieve youth-lead service projects that improve our communities.

#GPP in the media
This moment is one of those we will be smiling about for years to come! This photo was snapped at the dedication of our Candyland themed library gifted to Roberts Naylor School. This library is one of four libraries designed by Arizona teens. In addition to designing this vibrant work of candy-themed art, our teens collected hundreds of books to fill the libraries!
The teens pictured (Kylie, Lauren, Nathan and Sophia) were part of a group of Arizona teens that competed in the #GPP Teen Challenge!
There is something quite magical about picking up a book and getting lost in the story
