The Stone Soup Leadership Institute’s book and educational curriculum Stone Soup for the World: Life-Changing Stories of Everyday Heroes gives life to the Stone Soup fable.
For over 20 years, The Institute has worked alongside those on the front lines of climate change, resiliency, social justice, and economic equity: from inner cities to rural islands. We’ve empowered thousands of multicultural youth to become leaders in their lives, their communities, and the world.
We’ve developed eight Youth-Community Leadership Initiatives. The Institute’s Career Mentor & Job Shadow Day Programs and College Prep Programs prepare them for purposeful lives and 21st-century careers. We’ve synthesized lessons learned, developed a grassroots model, and exchange innovative solutions and build resilient communities. Over 120 communities use them to inspire and educate young people to become leaders in their lives, communities, and our world.
Founded in 1997, the Institute is a 501c3 nonprofit organization.
