Givitas for Young Professionals:
A New Community for Alumni of the Reciprocity Ring
Most people who have participated in a Reciprocity Ring or Givitas community remember the experience, even years later. They remember that asking for help produces amazing results when it’s done in a safe place. They remember that it feels great to help others.
That’s why we created Givitas for Young Professionals. We want to give you a place to exchange help with other, likeminded people.
- Best practices
- And anything else you can think of that you need.
We have a number of other, free groups for specialized interests. Please feel free to join any of these as well.

"The hallmark of any great work culture is that people care as much about each other’s success as their own. Many organizations never reach that level of 'productive generosity’, and it’s not because people aren’t willing to give. It’s because they’re afraid to ask for help. Givitas reduces the stigma of asking for help and enables people to give in five minutes a day.“
