Magazine, is an independent, nonprofit organization. We have a distinguished board, a dedicated staff of 21, plus five interns and many volunteers who work in an atmosphere that emphasizes collaboration, professionalism, and excellence. The Positive Futures Network and its publication YES! Magazine start with the belief that we need deep change if we are to avoid the breakdown of society and the natural world. Our hope lies in the fact that powerful innovations are taking hold within virtually every sector of society. The work of the Positive Futures Network and YES! Magazine is to give visibility and momentum to these signs of an emerging society in which life, not money, is what counts; in which everyone matters; and in which vibrant, inclusive communities offer prosperity, security, and meaningful ways of life. To enhance the impact of our work, we carry out extensive outreach programs to educators, students, journalists, activists, faith organizations, national networks, policy makers, and businesses.
