Generosity in quotes

As students stream on to college campuses across North America, consider the following advice.

“Today’s young adults are increasingly looking for ‘tribes that make a difference’ — they want something more than just to belong to a ‘happy gang.’ The challenge for nonprofit organizations is to trust these young people to take the opportunities and support we provide and, in their own perhaps messy but passionate way, do great things for their neighborhoods, their countries, the world.”

Peter O’Donnell, founder and president of Healthy Futures Group, in “It’s a New (Old) Day for Volunteerism: Crowdsourcing Social Change” (The Nonprofit Quarterly, Summer 2011)
