Who We Are

MISSION

To create a social movement of preteen influencers who employ creativity, understanding, morality, in every aspect of life.  We emphasize empathy
and compassion while creating innovative projects that have the potential to change the world.

VISION

Bright Future’s vision includes facilitating an international movement for creating
a world where children and adults are inspired to embody the positive qualities of empathy, respect, inclusion and kindness in their actions toward others.
We create projects that give children an opportunity to imagine ordinary ideas in a new
way so they can concentrate on morality and inspire others to do the same.
