Greater Good Science Center at UC Berkley and social change firm ProSocial have joined force in the interest of PURPOSE this back to school season. Recent studies reveal that only 1 in 5 high school aged youth and about 1 in 3 college aged youth report leading lives of purpose.

That's why the GGSC, in partnership with the social change firm ProSocial and the John Templeton Foundation, began the Purpose Challenge in 2016. This 18-month project analyzes the scientific research about purpose, collects and translates these resources for the public, and hosts an essay-writing contest for high school students who can infuse what they learn into their 2018 college applications.
