The Stone Soup Leadership Institute develops educational tools, trainings, initiatives to prepare young and emerging leaders to build a more sustainable world. Founded on Martha’s Vineyard in 1997, the Institute is a 501c3 non-profit organization. The Institute's book and educational curriculum, Stone Soup for the World: Life-Changing Stories of Everyday Heroes have been used in 120 communities around the world. The Institute brings the Stone Soup fable to life, inspiring people to give their gifts so together we can feed the hunger in our souls and the hunger in the world. All proceeds from our books support the Institute’s programs.

“Stone Soup for the World: Life-Changing Stories of Everyday Heroes is a blueprint for building a better world. Its heroes are legendary people and ordinary folks who, by conviction, imagination, innovation, persistence, frequently hard work, and not infrequently moral or physical courage, have lifted their neighbors and their communities. They challenge each of us to respond in kind. It’s time to take action—and chart the course for our future.”-Walter Cronkite, from the introduction to the book
