Good Journey Development Foundation

Michael Shultz

Good Journey Development Foundation supports and builds sustainable communities and young leaders who take responsibility for the improvement of our communities and who promote cultural understanding that contributes to the betterment of society.

Deaconess Foundation supports Good Journey’s LIVE (Leaning Into Value & Equity) Training through our Responsive Grant portfolio. The initiative provides Black teenagers and young adults with training to use the LIVE organizing model in their collective work to challenge racism and change inequitable systems. Through the program Black youth are trained to LIVE by eradicating internalized racial inferiority, learning to effectively fight external racism, finding and understanding their personal and collective power, making decisions that value the voice of the collective and organizing, mobilizing and advocating for action that creates systems change.
