Jared Paul left a career in the corporate world to use his skills of building relationships to create some positive change in the world and to help people in need. In June 2008 he founded A Good Idea in San Francisco and has since expanded to open a second chapter in New Jersey.
A Good Idea is a vehicle for positive social change ideas that connect people in need with people who want to help to alleviate homelessness and poverty. We build these connections for positive social change through service, education, and technology.
One of their most ambitious and inspirational proposed projects is to create a full-scale accredited residential charter high-school for homeless teens called Hope Academy of Arts & Sciences (HAAS), which would be the first of its kind in San Francisco.
“You never know what one little act… how that can effect the rest of a person’s day [or] the rest of a person’s life.” So, what’s your Good Idea?
