Because I said I would is a social movement and nonprofit dedicated to the betterment of humanity through promises made and kept. We are changing lives through character development programs and volunteer projects in partnership with schools, juvenile detention centers, prisons and communities. During the pandemic, we have dedicated our resources to COVID-19 prevention and response because that’s what the world needs. It is our goal to inspire citizens to be active participants in their communities and to instill a lifelong desire to help others through volunteerism. We provide fully developed plans for projects that make an impact on various social problems; these plans outline the entire process from start to finish. Anyone can use our Volunteer Project Plans as a blueprint for planning and executing your own independent volunteer projects addressing a specific problem in your local community. Chapters members make and keep promises as a team and address needs in their local communities through group volunteer projects. Rather than simply joining existing volunteer initiatives, each high school chapter identifies, plans, and executes independent volunteer events. After each volunteer experience, students carefully measure, report, and reflect on the impact of their efforts. Our Chapters have addressed needs such as literacy for youth, community beautification, social connectedness, food insecurity, and care for cancer patients undergoing chemo treatments, among others.
