I believe, we believe, that everyone has beautiful gifts - we were all made with something special, something unique...something that ignites each of us. Create Common Good is a beautiful mosaic of talents compiled from all over the world, all over Boise, and all over partner communities around the country. It's exciting to us to watch refugees thrive in our experiential job and language training course, on the farms, doing product creation, and now working in the culinary realm. But what's most exciting is to see the mutual benefit of bringing local talent, passion, and desires and using them to meet the needs of refugees with such extraordinary potential.
I think there's something deep within each of us that longs to use the gifts and talents that we were given and that we have shaped throughout our lives. And there's an infectious energy when we're in the 'sweet spot' we were made for - whether that's using your gift with photography, using your business skills to create social transformation, or helping a child learn to read.
There are so many ways to Create Common Good - we have loads of exciting ways you can join the team and harness that talent for good (we know you've got game!). We'd love to know what you're passionate about and get you involved if you're craving something more!
