Do Something believes teens have the power to make a difference. It is our aim to inspire, support and celebrate a generation of doers: young people who see the need to do something, believe in their ability to get it done, and then take action. At DoSomething.org we provide the tools and resources to convert your ideas and energy into positive action. Be part of a generation of doers.
Five guidelines we live by:
1. Believe in teenagers. Teenagers can lead today. We don't require adults. 2. Trust teenagers. We provide reliable, easy to access information and activation strategies, but teens decide for themselves what to do. 3. Celebrate teenagers. We think all measurable contributions from teens are valuable. 4. Respect teenagers. We understand that teenagers have diverse abilities and constraints. 5. Value teenagers. Our programs and products are free. We're not after teens' money; we want their passion, time and creativity.
