Encouraging Action

The group encourages its members to take tangible actions that promote positive change at whatever level of engagement is possible for them. Making a difference does not often require an arduous level of commitment. Fellow philosophers are asked to examine their consumer habits, to be conscious of their impact on a compromised environment, or to lessen the burden wherever possible of those enduring deprivation.

Individual mentorship: Leaders and volunteers also spend time in one on one contacts coaching people toward more productive lives and relationships.

Community Outreach:   CGO volunteers attend and lead political events, visit shut-ins, help at food banks and with homeless people. Still others take food and flowers to senior centers or help those marginalized in other ways.  Community outreach is a key element of CGO and providing meaningful ways for individuals to do this is paramount.
