OUR MISSION & VISION
Riley’s Way invests in and supports the next generation of kind leaders. We provide young people with the programs, leadership training, coaching and community they need to build a better world that values kindness, empathy and connection.
Call For Kindness
The Call for Kindness Fellowship is a national program that provides funding and leadership development training to youth-led projects that are rooted in kindness and strengthening communities. Winners receive up to a $5,000 grant to grow their organization and join a peer community of fellow changemakers to strengthen their leadership skills.
Youth Leadership Retreat
The Retreat brings together young leaders from around the country to participate in skill-building workshops where they learn how to develop meaningful relationships, communicate effectively and action planning.
Riley's Way Councils and Chapters
The Councils and Chapters bring together communities of students with different perspectives and supports them in becoming kind leaders. Councils and Chapters work directly with community organizations to find solutions to social impact issues through the lens of empathy and kindness.
