Useful Inc.

Useful Inc's vision is that when you walk down the street in ten years time, it will be the rule rather than the exception that every person you talk to is actually involved in some way in making positive change to something that’s bigger than themselves, and that each person sees that involvement as a major part of who they are.

Useful Inc. are based in Perth, Western Australia and are a not-for-profit, non-religious, non-political, non-sense, non sequitur organisation of volunteers and some paid staff mostly aged 16 to 30, but they’re not that into age limits. They work on delivering two projects, Big Help Mob and TEDxPerth, focused on making 'doing good' mainstream.
