What it means to LiveDifferent

Be kind

Change starts from within. When you look for ways to show kindness to yourself, and then to everyone around you, amazing things will start to happen.

Find a cause

Life is about people. Get out there and make a difference in the lives of others! And if you don’t know where to start, we have a few causes that are close to our hearts.

Live simply

Share what you have and inspire others to do the same; you can create a ripple effect of kindness that will build a wave of generosity within your community and beyond.

Here's how we do it...

Mental wellness programming

Our Circles program consists of dynamic school assemblies with additional session and workshops, and a powerful peer mentorship curriculum with optional training and support. We inspire students to dive deep into important topics and spark meaningful discussions that help them become more resilient and compassionate human beings.

Service learning abroad

Our international programs will have you working alongside our community partners, contractors, and local families to make a lasting change abroad. We offer a Builds program to construct homes in developing countries, and for students taking a gap semester, we offer the Academy program to explore three countries while experiencing self-discovery.

Fostering diversity, empathy and authenticity in youth, schools and communities

We are committed to being a model of care, connection and community—where different perspectives are valued so that we can meet the needs of the youth, schools and communities we serve. Internally, LiveDifferent aims to create a workplace where members are celebrated for their differences and diverse perspectives are welcome. LiveDifferent strives to create the freedom in which we are all unafraid to embrace and share our authentic selves. LiveDifferent believes in the value of active and deep listening and approaching critical conversations with empathy and a commitment to learning and unlearning.
