Submit Your Community Project!
We believe in the power of bringing people together to spark meaningful connection, celebrate diversity, and unite communities. At Count Me In, we develop educational programs, leadership training and media content designed to inspire and mobilize young people, and help them develop skills they will carry throughout their lives. We offer youth a platform to share the causes they care about, and the projects they are creating to help. Through live events and transmedia storytelling, we have created a peer-to-peer mentorship network that allows students to share their projects, ideas, and successes with others in their community, and around the world. Join this grassroots community of changemakers by submitting your Connected Community Project to our map.

Count Me In was started by Shane Feldman, following his challenging transition into high school. What started as a small project remarkably went viral, and has since evolved into the global phenomenon known as Count Me In. Committed to transforming the way teens see themselves in connection to the world through volunteerism and mentorship, Count Me In is now the largest youth-led organization in the world. Since our first program in 2011, Count Me In Community Members have organized and supported thousands of service projects, contributing to over 100 million volunteer hours logged to date, valued at over $2.6 Billion. Count Me In is a global leader in immersive and practical student leadership training, and community building. Our programs support local and global causes, and build social connections and self-esteem, which can help prevent depression, improve mental health, and build confidence.
