Riley’s Way empowers young leaders to use kindness and empathy to create meaningful connections and positive change.

We envision a future where kind leaders build a better world.

Call for Kindness

In our first national initiative, we asked teens to tell us how they can drive change that inspires kindness and builds meaningful connections in their communities. On May 6, 2019, we announced our 10 winners and 5 honorable mentions.


Youth Leadership Retreat

The Youth Leadership Retreat on September 20 - 22, 2019 will bring together young women create a community of like-minded peers as they build leadership skills to support them in being change agents in their schools and communities.


Riley's Way Councils

Riley's Way Councils connect public and private high schools to inspire teens to lead with empathy and kindness and work together to create programs that drive positive change in their communities.
