We met Paul Kooperman through the Purpose.do 2015 conference and asked him why he gives a damn.

Why?

  • Young people want to find their passion, peers and path.
  • Young people need meaningful employment
  • The world needs givers, initiators, innovators, instigators and drivers
  • We all have extraordinary potential we need to fulfill 
  • We get what we give and benefit from empowering others to benefit
  • We need leaders to create more leaders
  • Communities need proactive contributors
  • We create opportunities for ourselves by creating them for others
  • Young people need positive role models, but can also be great role models for others
  • Kids have ideas about how the world should be and can be empowered to express and action their ideas

 

 

What do I do? The Field Trip is a weekly program which runs every Sunday 3:30-5pm in various locations. The program is about young people finding their passion, peers and path and feeling empowered to be our next generation of thinkers, doers, creators, innovators, inventors, entrepreneurs, philosophers, philanthropists and leaders. It matters because if not now, then when? If not us, then who?

Every person born into this world represents something new, something that never existed before, something original and unique. It is the duty of every person to know and consider that she is unique in the world in her particular character and that there has never been someone like her before. For if there had been someone like her before, there would be no need for her to be in the world. Every single person is a new thing in the world and is called upon to fulfil her particularity in the world.
