What we're about

“The greatness of a community is most accurately measured by the compassionate actions of its members.”

- Coretta Scott King

You’re invited to join Challenge Day’s “Be the Change” community. We are aspiring to leverage the Challenge Day community & beyond to create more connection, communion and collective change together! Please join us if you are looking to make a difference in the world and have fun doing it! We will be organizing community events for anyone who has (or hasn't) attended a Challenge Day, or any other Be The Change workshop or event and want to keep the spirit alive in their hearts and lives. All are welcome.

What you will get out of this MeetUp?

• A healthy, safe community to grow, learn and serve

• Time to refuel in a way that truly nourishes you

• A space to be creative and bring your ideas of how we can better our society and world

• Conversations and collaboration with mover and shaker – change makers!

We are planning to organize events such as:

• flash mobs of random acts of kindness

• Potlucks and conscious movie nights

• karaoke nights (with optional support around facing fear of singing)

• unique and fun classes held by various members

• and much much more!

This is a community effort with many leaders. We welcome anyone who wants to join us in bringing more community to Challange Day. The common theme is to BE THE CHANGE and help this beautiful nonprofit thrive at a time when we need it the most!

Challenge Day is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that helps people learn to connect through powerful, life-changing programs in their schools, businesses, communities and families. Challenge Day is also the name of our signature school program. Using highly interactive and energetic activities, our programs provide teens and adults with tools to break down the walls of separation and isolation and replace them with compassion. We inspire people to live, study, and work in an environment of acceptance, love, and respect. We stand for a world where everyone feels safe, loved and celebrated.
