Help us grow the movement for restoring people and planet by donating or spreading the word on #GivingTuesday this !
"The great gratification of my life is the engagement that I've been able to establish and benefit from as I've watched movements develop over the last 40 years," says Danny Glover who supports the work of Bioneers, an innovative nonprofit educational organization that highlights breakthrough solutions for restoring people and planet.
This #GivingTuesday, Bioneers is raising funds to train the next generation of leaders through mentorship, skill-sharing and workshops at their National Bioneers Summit, held every October in the San Francisco Bay Area. Donations will benefit indigenous youth, low-income women, and students from around the country.
Participants of the 2014 Bioneers Youth Leadership Program share their experiences:

“This conference shed light on my potential career path and gave me insight into the people whose lifestyles I aspire to one day replicate.” – Jake Kornak
"Seeing a speaker that had a goal like me to change school lunches helps me to know change is possible." – Uriel Reyes
“This weekend left me with a longing to reconnect with land, with the earth, with myself, as well as to re-connect with activism, to directly take a stand and organize in the movements that are coming to a head to address interrelated crises head-on." – Daniel Jubelirer
In 2014, over 50% of youth attending Bioneers were people of color, including 60 indigenous youth representing 21 tribes. This year, the Bioneers Youth Leadership Program awarded a record number of 357 scholarships to deserving youth from the US and abroad.
