Be Better is a Shanghai-based NGO that was founded in 2009 to equip China’s next generation with civic and financial skills. The organization specializes in developing curriculums that promote self-discovery, effective communication, financial literacy, leadership, and social innovation to children and youth aged 3-23, especially in disadvantaged communities. With an emphasis on experiential learning, its core programs expose youth to best practices for social businesses, the importance of budgeting, and various career path opportunities. In addition to partnering with local teachers to deliver Be Better programs in the classroom, Be Better is building a Diverse Institute to enable youth to discover and find confidence in their individuality, and to empower those with a strong sense of social responsibility to become changemakers. To date, Be Better has provided its services to over 330,000 youth.
