More about Good Citizen:
Good Citizen is dedicated to providing the inspiration, information and resources needed to improve ourselves, our communities, our nation and our world through service.
Good Citizen was born from Brad Jamison’s personal journey serving others for more than 30 years, as well as his professional experience studying and witnessing the transformative nature of service. It is Brad’s belief that service – the act of sharing oneself with others – is one of the keys to a more productive, compassionate and cohesive world.
By bringing together tips, tools, stories and various points of view, Good Citizen strives to give you what you need to get involved in your community through service. And, that via service, you will be a “good citizen” and catalyst for great change.
