SORT BY Relevancy
Prosocial behavior refers to "voluntary actions that are intended to help or benefit another individual or a group of individuals. This definition refers to consequences of a doer's actions rather than the motivations behind those actions. Prosocial behavior includes a broad range of activities: sharing, comforting, rescuing, and helping. Though it is often confused with altruism, they are, in fact, two distinct concepts.

Wouldn’t it be great to know how to introduce a gaming dimension to the training and development you offer?
Game mechanics are directly linked to human desires: reward, status, achievement, self-expression, competition, and altruism. What would it look like to include game elements such as points, levels, challenges, rewards, and leaderboards… to drive participation, engagement and loyalty?
When the Gamification of your training and development is done right, you give people a sense of meaning, mastery, and autonomy.
What types of training are you designing or consuming now? How much better could your training be with a little bit of Gamification?

Trey Gass is a normal teenager from Phoenix, Arizona. In 2011 Trey took a tour of a safe house for human trafficking victims that was located in his home town of Phoenix. When he heard about the problem of human trafficking and how it was happening in his own city it broke his heart. So in 2011 Trey founded Save a Life. An organization dedicated to stopping human trafficking. With $100 left over of christmas money he bought a bunch of bracelets and sold them and it took off from there. Trey makes no money off of this. The money goes to the safe house Trey toured in 2011. Save A Life now offers shirts and bracelets in different colors and is continuing to grow. Trey speaks at different engagements about the problems of human trafficking and sells the shirts to continue to raise money for safe houses to take in human trafficking victims.

When is the last time that you did something nice just because it was a nice thing to do?
For those of you who have never lived in poverty—I mean in a household where you eat the same thing every day and getting new clothes mean hand-me-downs from older siblings—it must be difficult to understand the true meaning of volunteering. To truly volunteer, there can be no expectation of reward or recognition. There should be a sense of gratitude toward the persons that you serve. If you have never experienced, this then I invite you to slow down and engage in a volunteer activity that helps the elderly and the very poor right here in America.
I went on a mission to Honduras at the beginning of this year. The services performed were most needed. I saw altruism at its best. I also saw an unfamiliar spirit among some of the volunteers: I overheard a person say, “ I hope God was looking, because I did my good deed for the year.” The comment saddened me. It was clear that that the purpose for this person was to get brownie points from God. Americans do not have to leave America to look for impoverished people to help. From the comment that I overheard, I surmise that the trip to another country is more dramatic and gets the volunteer more brownie points.
The number of non-elderly American households with children living on less than $2 per day has more than doubled in the last 15 years. Extreme poverty — defined as areas where at least 40 percent of the population lives below the federal poverty line, which in 2010 was $22,300 for a family of four. The number of neighborhoods of extreme poverty grew in roughly three-quarters of the nation’s largest metropolitan areas.
