Students In Action

Students In Action (SIA) is a unique youth service, leadership and recognition program that supports, trains and empowers today's youth to be leaders, problem solvers, entrepreneurs and impactful global citizens.
The six goals of SIA help youth develop confidence in their ability to make a difference and build the skills to do it well, in the process better preparing them for success in school, work, and life.
PREPARE: Prepare to serve your community

REFLECT: Evaluate success and personal growth
SHARE: Tell service
Our in-depth, reinforcing support structures of training, technology, and a continuum of adult care uniquely position us to unlock service passions, and give young people confidence in their ability to make a difference and the skills they need to do it well. It is our goal to deliver this to more than 1 million young people.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

* To be the country's most profound award for public service - at a national and community level.
* To be the organization most central to building a culture of service in America
* To engage, train and activate young Americans to be leaders, to get involved in their communities and to create maximum, measurable impact.
* To measure the impact we are having on our constituents.
*To measure the impact that our constituents are having on their communities and on the issues they care about around the world.

Multiplying Good is an organization with legacy, scale, and reach through the following core programs:

YOUTH LEADERSHIP & SERVICE
Multiplying Good concentrates on building confidence and developing key skills for youth leaders through programs like Students In Action - a unique youth service, leadership and recognition program that supports, trains and empowers today’s youth. We have an expansive and rising network that includes 37,000 youth who have received in-depth training over the past decade and have in turn engaged hundreds of thousands of their peers, across Leadership Communities in 11 states. This deep learning experience happens through an extensive support structure encompassing training, technology, and a continuum of caring adults. We have set a bold strategic goal to train one million youth as the next generation of empathetic leaders and changemakers.

EMPLOYEE RECOGNITION
Our employee recognition platform, Champions, is the largest of its kind in the country. By partnering with organizations to celebrate their employees we help employers, that represent a base of 8 million employees across the country, to use the power of recognition to inspire the individual and build compassionate, caring workplace environments. Recognition empowers employees, connects them to purpose, and leads to greater empathy and happier and more productive workplace cultures.

JEFFERSON AWARDS
Unparalleled in amplifying excellence in service for nearly 50 years, our national events honor those who multiply good with Jefferson Awards. We honor those who put others first because we believe in the power of recognition. Our prestigious platform connects employees, unsung heroes and youth to a national brand, synonymous with service and prestige - along with national figures – elevating all and exponentially increasing their acts of service.

MEDIA PARTNERS
Media Partners leverage our prestigious brand to elevate the best of their communities, and in doing so are positioned to multiply good. Multiplying Good works with Media Partners to strengthen ties to their communities through compelling and powerful storytelling. Our passionate Media Partners enable audiences to nominate individuals and provide a platform to recognize grassroots unsung heroes in their hometowns. By providing recognition and a platform for these individuals, we multiply the positive impact they can deliver. Today, this network reaches 100 million Americans per year and has given more than 63,000 Jefferson Awards to grassroots unsung heroes. In addition, Media partner sponsors connect their brands to the best of their communities, helping local media tell remarkable stories of these local changemakers.

Our programs and recognition platforms are designed to create a ripple effect of action - where those engaged in service to others are supported to do more and those around them are inspired to act, creating stronger, more connected communities.

Multiplying Good has a strong, 49-year history of amplifying excellence in public service, and a proven track record of activating youth in service to others over the past thirteen years. We continually grow and improve our programming, supported by research, evaluation, and the resources of a national brand, as we elevate and recognize individuals for their accomplishments in service and leadership.

Multiplying Good offers powerful programs that help individuals discover their potential through service to others. For nearly 50 years, we have generated ripples of good by igniting and honoring public service passions. We support everyone and their service through the unique combination of activation, training and recognition.
