Give your service activities a boost by joining the brand-new Beyond Belief Network!


Humanism at WorkAs announced in March, we have been hard at work behind the scenes revitalizing and integrating Volunteers Beyond Belief, Partners, and FBB’s Light The Night team. We are hoping that this will help you and your local secular humanist groups achieve your service goals.

VBB teams actively serve their communities with volunteering and fundraising for local nonprofits. Partners teams help raise money for FBB beneficiaries and FBB itself to help fund and expand our initiatives. And FBB helps coordinate the efforts of atheists and secular humanists for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society Light The Night Walk and fundraisers. LTN teams join through the LTN system and do not have to join BBN. LTN teams are encouraged to join BBN, so LTN events will be counted as VBB or Partners events.

The biggest change to our volunteer structure is that benefits have been divided into levels dependent on a team’s submission of event reports. New teams can join the Beyond Belief Network in order to receive updates from FBB, join the BBN Facebook page to access tips and event guides, and start serving their local communities. The only requirement to join is responding to an opt-in email once per year.

As groups submit reports about their events, they will gain access to three levels of additional benefits, including assistance with event ideas, planning, and promotion; FBB t-shirts with team logo; grants; and recognition in the humanist community. We plan to expand these benefits as we develop BBN.

You can find more information about the VBB and Partners programs by visiting those pages on the FBB website. Any group with a public secular humanist or atheist identity that wants to be on our email lists, join the Facebook group, or that wants to start serving their community is encouraged to join BBN today by filling out our application. Apply today and put your humanism to work!
