Barna Group undertook this study to learn more about the types of people who are taking initiative in their communities – who gather, donate, serve, create, teach, mobilize and innovate, alongside other passionate neighbors, to meet needs around them.
Alongside new research and data visualizations, Better Together includes:
Profiles of different types of people who participate in volunteer groups and what drives them toward compassion and collaboration
Details about how healthy groups form, communicate and grow
Interviews with Gabe Lyons, Makoto Fujimura, Becca Stevens and a panel of faith and nonprofit leaders from across the U.S.
